It would be very handy to have an option to expand/contract a selection not in all directions only, but also to a specified one. Or to limit the selection in other way.

Is it doable in blender? Or any addons?

Here is an example (manually done) of what i would like to achieve.

selection growth in one direction only

If you've selected a pair of elements which bear some logical relation to one another ( e.g. along a loop, along a ring, every other along a ring ) then Select Next Active (CtrlShiftNumpad+) makes a pretty good job of carrying on the sequence you started.
