WIP Wednesday - Shifting Hues 5

Well the summer is winding down and next week I start back to Grad School.  I just can't believe how fast the time has gone.  In a little more than a month, I will be a bridesmaid in my friend Becky's wedding and then it will be Halloween, Thanksgiving and the Christmas.  EEEEEEEEE!

I can't think about that right now but I know it will be here before I know it.  Instead let's see what I got accomplished.

Hue Shift Afghan

Quadrant 2 - All finished
I finished the second quadrant or section of my Hue Shift Afghan.  This means that I am officially done with half of the blanket.  I love the section as a whole but think the dark royal row is the best of this section.  The coordinating colors just pop.  I do love the 2 yellows in the top left square because it's so happy and sunny.

The next section is similar to this one just constructed in a different order.  I started the next set of blocks but decided to put it down for a bit.  I worked on these 25 squares fairly consistently for July and August and I need a bit of a break.  During the time-out on this project, I hope this section relaxes because it's smaller than the first quadrant.  I may have to block these to make the quadrants the same size before I start on the border.

The 2 quadrants lined up
As you can see from the border, the right set of squares are a little bit smaller than the left set of squares.  I did tie these sections together but only loosely to help the smaller section to stretch.

Red and White Squares!
In the meantime, I have continued to work on these squares.  In fact I have almost all of the colors crocheted (Blue, Orange and Cinnamon remain).  Last night I reviewed my squares inventory sheet and realized I had enough colors to start on the next section.  I have 11/20 squares done with white borders now I need to work on the rest and weave in ends.  Hopefully next week I can show you more progress on this blanket.

Other Projects

I worked on Cherry Sundry and Happy Street this week but unfortunately, they are still in the stages where you cannot see any progress.  I should have more pictures next week now that the 2nd quadrant of hue shift is done. Other than that I have just been enjoying my last week before I start my hectic fall schedule.  

Anyway, that was my week.  Hope yours is going well.
