Five-eighths of an inch in diameter! Yep. This is what they look like. Once I finalized the design, making them was pretty easy. Naming them was harder. I learned a bit more about the Pittsburgh Steelers logo. The geometric shape is called “astroid,” but that was too close to asteroid. It looks kind of like a shuriken, a ninja throwing star. But that’s silly, right? Still, I kept coming back to that. So, behold, ninja stars!
You can see more on my Flickr page, of course. Now I’ve decided that they look like Lantana buds, which dovetails nicely with my other flower names for crochet designs, but it’s too late. They’re ninja stars in my brain.
In the future I’ll mix and match colors. All I need is 25-26 hours per day, and I’ll be set!
