This is for Pat, who asked about the flower image in my last post. Here are 2 photos of the more familiar single hibiscus flower form. All of these are in my father-in-law's garden. The climate here in the Los Angeles area is both warmer in winter and cooler in summer than ours, just a few hours by car north, and many tropical species thrive.

I knew as I wove that the scarves would be at least somewhat iridescent, but only wet finishing including a final hard press will tell the truth.
This is the 4th scarf on the warp:
Hmm. Yeah, that's iridescence. Blue in places that flash to dark gold when the cloth shifts in relation to the light and to the viewer.
This one is accompanied at the event by a red-on-blue, a purple-on-blue, and a green-on-blue version, each with a different treadling, but all with the same color shifting.
Still on the loom is enough warp for 2 more scarves, and yarn on the shelf that are dark green and orange-red. Now I need 2 more treadlings...
See you this weekend!

I'll be there Friday evening, Saturday midday, and Sunday afternoon.
For more information and a map, see the guild website. BTW, the image near the top of that page, of a blue-green silk scarf draped on a mannequin, is my work; there will be some others of that ilk in the sale, as well as some shawls and table runners. Those in the know come on Friday, before all the best treasures are gone...
This area (the northern part of San Luis Obispo County) is shopping-deprived, so we fiber folk are doing our best to improve the retail economy as much as we can.
Hope to see you there!
