Slip Stitch Crochet Lace Possibilities

Woke up this morning and saw this:
It could only mean that fairyfolk got into my yarn stash while I slept. 

I don't know if they forgot to take this swatch with them, or what. Maybe they're hinting at something. I'm not even sure what the fairies mean it to be, but get this: 

These are slip stitches. I can see why the wee folk favor slip stitch lace--slip stitches being all about small and all. 

I'm seeing a wide shallow triangular wrap. I hope I can figure out how they made slip stitches look like that.

Full moons embolden fairies, and we just had that super-full moon the other day. If I've noticed that moonlight makes my yarn stash glow, surely fairies have too. Seems to make linen yarn magnetic for them too. Luckily they left my beaded silk and glittery mohair alone! (Wouldn't be easy to rip out fairy crochet swatches with those yarns.)
