What's On My Hook? #22: Double Crochets and Chains

Hey there!

I have been quite the busy crocheting bee lately ^.^  I currently have 2 blankets on my hooks. One is a tartan and the other is a granny ripple or chevron.  I'm working the base mesh of the tartan right now and I'm about 1/4 of the way through it. The stripe pattern on this one is more involved than the first one I did, so I'm hoping that the final plaid will be really amazing.

I'm excited about the granny ripple/chevron blanket more though.  I guess because I've had the desire to do a chevron blanket for a LONG time, but all the patterns I'd see were done in single crochet.  Frankly, I don't have time for that. Plus I'm not a fan of single crochets unless they're in a tapestry crochet design.  Anywho! I only have one row of this blanket done as I started it last night.

A while ago, I wrote a post on about warm and cozy blankets I loved from Etsy (post >>here<<) and the first one was a yellow and white chevron. It has literally been chillin in the back of my mind since then! So as you can probably guess, my granny chevron is going to be yellow and white. 

There will most definitely be progress pictures of these as I go.  I'm hoping to be finished with these two within the next 2 weeks... hopefully.  I don't know how it's going to go with working them both at the same time.  But I have to get use to multitasking with my crochet if I want to be successful with a shop.

Speaking of this ever elusive shop, I need to really settle on a name.  At first, I wanted to call it Epiphaneia which is the Greek root of the word epiphany.  But honestly, as much as I love the word and how it feels on the tongue... it's really hard to spell. *shrug*  So back to the drawing board... or think tank.  The other day I thought Yarn Heart, but Lamar said that was "meh kinda boring."  Then I thought XXIV (roman numerals for 24- my birth day) or XII (roman numerals for 12- my favorite number)... I'm still brainstorming, but if you have any suggestions please leave a comment! I want to make this shop idea a reality.
