Twinkle, twinkle little star...

...how I wish you looked as much like a star as you did in the magazine where I found your pattern.

Because really, you kind of look like a flower. And a bit of a boring one, at that.

But, in the star's defense, it's supposed to be one of about 80 all strung together in a lacy, star-studded afghan. Joined to other stars by each of the six tips, the "petals" get a little more pointed looking, adding more starriness (star-osity?) to the overall shape and appearance of the motif.

Strength in numbers, as it were.

But one star all alone? Kind of dull.

Despite my criticisms, I'm thinking this might make a cute baby blanket; soft, puffy little stars in pastel shades like this one (which is butter yellow, but appears cream due to my inadequate photographic skills). I used Bernat Baby Coordinates (leftover from a baby blanket I made a year or so ago) which isn't what the pattern called for, but was what I had on hand.

And now I feel the urge to make more, more, MORE stars and see if my suspicion is correct - that this might actually make a heavenly baby gift.
