Signs of spring!

A kind of starfish I haven't seen here before...
And I saw this creature under the ramp the other day -- we never knew these existed until we moved aboard, and they're beautiful! This one was almost 10" long...
It's called a nudibranch (Google it, and you'll see lots of images of different ones, all amazing!) -- we see them 'swimming' near the surface once in awhile, but this one was sort of 'crawling' along the bottom. You could see the 'trail' it was leaving in the sand!

Finished the newest fingerless gloves, finally. I call them my 'Sunday-go-to-meetin' gloves cuz they feel so fancy!
I'll be casting on another shawl today with this yummy yarn:
Which beads do *you* think I should use?? :)

Love the new gloves! And I like both bead types so I can't choose. Heh.

I was trying to identify the starfish for you. Could be a mottled star. They like the head of inlets. Very variable in colouration but they have the long arms in your photo. The nudibranch is very cool too.
