The machine is telling me that the file [one(1) page only] is too large. Same problem I always have when trying to put attachments on a msg. D

That probably means that you should resize your image before uploading it to a forum. I realize you may not know how to do this so if you will let me know what operating system you are using I will give you instructions on how to do this.
As for the hammock instructions you have, I would appreciate it if you could send them to my email address.

Okay.... I've got four(4) pages of instructions scanned but I can't post it. [I am knot knowledgeable enough about computers to be able to shift things around or change their format]. Does anyone want them? To use? To post? For the KYBO? or should I delete the scans and make room for something else? PTYFNA. D

  I would love any pages of hammock making instrructions.  They would also be a fine addition to the hammock section of the nets and net making forum.  Tony

Hi Dee and SyberProdigy

Thanks for scanning in the info and posting it here, much appreciated.
Together with the instructions posted earlier, we now have all the details we need to
make our own hammock.

I meanwhile tested my first hammock and I am pleased that it does the job.
It is perhaps a bit narrow (just enough for one (skinny) person), but the material was of limited supply.
If I get round, I will post a picture of this "Stuart Grainger Model" made of scraps.
One advantage of this type of hammock is that the stretcher bars are detachable.
You can then fold/roll the hammock and the whole thing then fits neatly into a backpack.
Good for outdoor activities.

The big hammock project will have to wait till summer, as I currently don't have the space and tools
but that gives me plenty of time to practice netting, clew knots etc. and get the materials I need.

Lets see some pictures of home made hammocks. If anybody has done one, I would be delighted to see them here.

Happy knotting

Yepp, I have indeed
His page is in my (many) knotting bookmarks

But I am affraid he is knotting/netting in a different league.
His work looks impeccable just as the products of frayedknotarts and others.
I am still amazed of what can be done out of a few yards of rope/yarn
but that is the fascination of it, isn't it.

They have reached a level of skill/mastery that I perhaps reach one day.
As you know, learning the building blocks of fancy knotting
(plaids, sennits, MWK, turksheads, netting etc.) is just the start. then you have to learn to
master them, so that they look good every time. That is the real work, which requires patience,
perseverance and enthusiasm. But once you have a completed project in your hand
and it looks just the way you want it, it is very satisfying.
