    Thanks Knotty, I looked at your DIY write up many times before making this hammock. I had the same thought you just said, about making a strong hammock. My fiancee likes to lay in the hammock with me a lot so I wanted to make something I wouldn't have to worry about, just plop down and "hang" out.

    Wow Awesome work,

    I was content not doing anything today and now after seeing yours I feel like I should go work on it LOL

    I think stitch work is great on that!

    Wow, that whipped end is a piece of beauty. Worthy of framing and selling to an art museum! (Ok, maybe textile museum? Craft museum? Any museum!)
