I made this today, for my mom for mothers day. Yes, it's late due to some unforeseen issues, but she will be thrilled non-the-less.
It's 11' x 90" wide. Gathered/folded ends, lashed. No sewing the gathered end on these wide hammocks, as it makes the sides too high. With proper folding, like a fan, they work out great.
I did Pipsissewa TED style bugnet, and I'm very pleased with it and think it will be easy for her to handle. Speaking of handle. My friend, Dweller7, makes all of my amsteel needs and adjustable ridgelines. This time he added a long chainlink so that I can add a handle from the ridgeline which she can use to help herself sit up. My back can no longer handle pulling her out every morning.
I really, really like the TED and think that this is what I'll end up adding to my own hammmock too. I've held off adding a bugnet to my pink hammock because I kept going back and forth with a few different styles, but I really think this style is a winner. Thank you Pipsissewa!!
Just like my first hammock, this one and the organza was all purchased from http://www.tableclothsfactory.com/default.asp
So I've had a short break from all the DIY http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=52163 and now back at it I don't think it ever ends. With all of the DIY, I also don't think my house will ever look like it used too
