WIP Wednesday: Blue Dreams


Dreadnought by Cherie Priest. I’m about halfway though and loving it. It’s a continuation of the story she began in Boneshaker, but not as I expected it to be. I was thrown for a bit until I saw the connection and in this way she shows more of what’s going on in this fictional America she’s created. It’s a very interesting and fun read.

I’m taking a couple days off from knitting so I can work on the two dreamcatchers that were ordered. I have the smallest one nearly done, though the hangings at the bottom are giving me fits since I didn’t tie the knot right. I think I need to take it off and redo it. Other than that and cleaning up the stray threads, this one is done.

The larger one is further along than last week, but just barely. I still need to do the small one that will hang in the center of the 7inch ring after I web and bead the large ring. I always forget how much thread it takes to wrap a large ring … and how long it takes.

    It looks really pretty. I made a dream catcher at some Girl Scout function once, it was a ton of fun


  2. Oh my goodness, I hadn't realized that you wrap that entire outer ring. That is a lot of work! All worth it though, if the web catches all the harm and keeps it away from the sleeper!

    This is definitely on my list of a craft I need to learn…they are just so beautiful and I love any and all Native American art. You did a great job with the small one it's so beautiful!! I bet the big one is going to come out so nice because of it's size!!

    I find that they go fairly quickly, once I get in the right frame of mind. 🙂

    Yep, I use a single strand of thread and wrap all the way around. I try to put a lot of care and attention into every one that I do.

    I have a whole gallery of ones I've sold in the past, (https://shadowsknitknacks.com/catching-those-dreams/dreamcatcher-gallery/) if you're interested. I used to make them full time but now it's just on a commission basis.
