Motif Metamorphosis

Some of my hourglass motifs have turned into butterflies... or dragonflies... well, some sort of flying insect anyway, just fluttering by.  Call it a "flutter-by".

The fabric surrounding the bug is a little 2/1 point twill.  The rectangle where the sprang warp leaves the fabric then becomes a 2/1 straight twill in that area.

They are fluttering around on these scarves, adorning them with their colorful wings.

I've been playing around with different yarns: some wool/rayon, some silks, even some metallics for a little sparkle for the holidays.  Some of these handwoven scarves will be available for purchase at SCHG's Weaving and Fiber Festival, Sunday November 3rd, 2013 at the Torrance Cultural Center in Torrance, California.
