Here is what I hope is the refined, properly lined up starfish. The pattern is not ready yet, but will be soon. I have a wonderful "helper", (more teacher really), who is guiding me through some mistakes I had in the pattern.
I'm hoping to tat another one tomorrow in a more "starfish" color. This is Lady Shuttle Maker's hand dyed thread "Citrus" in size 20. (I think that's the name. I bought it a long time ago and I'm not sure.) It might look as if it belongs in a Disney movie instead of under the sea, but I like it anyway.
