Still plugging along...

I wish I were one of those bloggers who could pound out a blanket every 2 weeks.  Or that I had something fabulous to show you every single time I blog.  Unfortunately, I'm still working on this chevron blanket and it is slooowww goooooiiinng...

Chevron in progress

Even though this chevron pattern takes longer than some of the others that use double crochet, I really just love the fabric made from single crochet through the back loop.  It has such a nice drape, and yet it makes such a warm cozy blanket. Do you have a favorite ripple/chevron pattern?

This one is a gift for the parents of a friend who lost everything they had when their house burned down this summer.

Here it is again, draped over my legs while I work on it:

Every time I make one of these for someone else I want to steal it for myself.
The next one I make is going to be MINE!

Anyone else in the mood to ripple?  Join this Ripple Along on Flickr.

I know how you feel. I read other blogs and am amazed by the speed at which they seem to finish crochet projects! I'm sooooo slow!
I love your chevron blanket. I'm working on a ripple blanket too. It'll be a while before I'm as far along as you are ;-)

Your chevron pattern is my favorite now. I love your blanket and the colors too. I am not a fast crocheter but I really enjoy it and the fin,ished project.

Thank you, shend! I love that pattern, though it's one of the more "old school" versions of the ripple. I'm trying to bring it back! Haha!
