Fabulous New Afghan Just Listed ~ and a pet-related quandary for the shop owner!

Here's my newest afghan, and I think I've outdone myself in creating another of my popular, colorful signature blankets! I call it my Kaleidoscope Afghan because of the way the colors swirl around the kaleidoscope-bright variegated blocks ~

You can see it better in the picture below. You can also see how my furry photographer's assistant, LuvLee the cat, has outdone herself by posing in the product shots!
.

Charming as she is in these photos, LuvLee gave me a dilemma when listing the afghan. Like any proud momma, I so wanted to show off pictures of my baby! But with online listings, you never know which prospective buyer might be scared away because of cat allergies, fears, or general distaste. (Go figure.) I even raised the question - pets or not in product shots - in a forum thread, and as usual got answers all over the map. Finally, someone pointed out that showing the cat at least alerts allergy sufferers right up front.
.
.
So I decided to go with it, and use this last photo to close out the product listing. (It is, indeed, one of LuvLee's best photos ever :) After all, I mention the cat presence in my shop policies, and I even have LuvLee on my banner - so what's to lose? Beside, I do launder my afghans before they're shipped to the buyer!
.
.
Before I close, I should tell you that the Kaleidoscope Afghan is listed at a special introductory price, now through November 1! If you love jaw-dropping color, handmade beauty, and practical, durable warmth - this is the afghan for you! With the holiday season ahead, here's a great way to get a jump on shopping for a truly special gift. And besides, it has LuvLee's endorsement!


UPDATE ~ This afghan was SOLD to a lovely lady at  holiday craft fair! But I am happy to do a custom order - write to burchjan@gmail.com if interested :)

I think I saw that thread you started, or at least another like it... though cats personally wouldn't bother me (I have two of my own!) I suppose I understand the other point of view... LuvLee is beautiful though, and I think if all else was equal I'd choose the blanket endorsed by the cat. ;o)

Thank you, Christie :) Yes, this design is based on the Log Cabin quilt pattern. It's like a single quilt block enlarged to blanket-size! (Only in crochet, of course.)
