All caught Up.

At least I can now say I'm all caught up with something that is until tomorrow when the next Moogly square will be released.

Block Ten
Whimsical Penelope’s Merry Go Round 
This one seemed to take forever to make because you are crocheting in the space below on each round. It has also turned out a little bit twisted so perhaps my tension was too tight, I'm hoping that it will be fine after a good blocking. Pattern here

Block Eleven
The Never Ending Wildflower

I love this one the flower is so pretty, the pattern is here

Block Twelve (alternative)
Spring Fling

I made this one instead of the featured one which you can see here  I did like the one that was featured but I didn't have the time to give it my full attention so chose one of the alternatives, I really love this square and I think it looks very effective in the one colour, I will try and make the featured one when I have more time.  You can find the pattern to the one above here

Block Thirteen 
Tip Toe through the Tulips (alternative)

It's great that Tamara has provided us with lots of alternatives because I didn't really fancy block thirteen either even though it's pretty I don't want a star in this particular afghan, (you can see the pattern here) so I chose the one above instead which I really like but not so much all the ends that needed weaving in. Pattern here

Block Fourteen
Tamara Square

This one was actually designed for Tamara you can find the pattern here  I like it a lot and it was easy to make too.  

I have found that all of these squares turn out less than the required 12" even when I use a bigger hook I always have to do an extra round or two, I'm thinking that our UK aran weight yarn is probably a tad finer than the US worsted weight. 

I am enjoying making these square's but I'm finding there is so much going on here at home right now I don't have the time I wish I had to devote to my crafting or even my blog come to that so if I disappear for awhile please bear with me I will be back. :)
