Finally Finished Chevron Blanket

For several years I have been working on a knitted blanket for our family room. It is only worked on when:
#1) I am finished with the other more pressing projects from my extensive list.
#2) The weather is cool enough to have a large blanket draped across my lap.

So after 3 or 4 winters I finally got the blanket long enough to feel like it was finished.
 All the left over blues and a few beiges that were in my yarn stash were put into this throw.
 I had done a scarf several years ago that was a 13 stitch repeat chevron pattern, and I just made that pattern repeat so that it was wide enough for a sofa throw. Then it just had to continue being knitted until it was long enough for our long legged family.
Kind of random, and interesting.

I'm more than glad that it is finally finished.
