    My first DIY the hammock

    Nice job! Looks comfy to me. But I'm a bit biased considering my hammock is the exact same thing, but purple.

    I would say you stole my hammock, but mine is a double layer. I've been told that Knotty mods are good for dealing with all the extra stuff from the wide material but I have yet to try it.

    great job. Mouse is right. a knotty mod will give you the ability to take up some of the slack by piece of shock cord and a cord lock. Pretty easy to do. I have the same fabric print but in 1.1 at 11'. very conformable.

    You were right the mystery material is not light, I did get the sock made but is way too heavy.

    Great looking hammock. Now that I'm beginning to roll on to my right side, I sleep with my head right backwards from most people I believe, I've found that the loose fabric forms a cradle for my head. As long as it's not flopping down over my face I'm OK.
