It may be no big deal to some of you but believe me for me it was.
I'm talking about the first block for the Moogly Afghan CAL 2015 This was no walk in the park I can tell you! not so much because the pattern was difficult it is very well written and there are lots of photo's and videos, no it's those darn quad treble crochets! these are needed to make the jacobs ladder stitch.
Now I have used the jacobs ladder stitch before when I made this crib cover here but this block takes the jacobs ladder stitch to a whole new level as you have then running diagonally and horizontally and I just couldn't get my qtr's neat or the same size for that matter. I think that my tension must have been too tight as the block turned out 10 inches square instead of 12 so I may have to add another round of stitches, I will see how big the others turn out.
For those of you who are following this CAL how did you find it ? I know many have sailed through it judging by all the lovely blocks on the ravelry page. I'm looking forward to the next block which will be revealed on Thursday but I'm hoping that it won't be quite as much a challenge :)
Hope you are all having a lovely week, it's freeeeezing here! keep warm.
