ORIGINAL DESIGNS. Every afghan is ONE OF A KIND. When the Etsy listing says "only one available," that means I only made one like that and probably won't ever make another one.
For me it's all about color and design. I love to work out new designs, and really don't want to make the same thing twice. I'm not going to get rich making afghans; I do this for fun and the challenge of creating something new.
Since it takes most of a month to make one afghan, it isn't likely this shop will ever have more than 8 or 10 items in stock at one time. Any time you look at the shop you will probably see a design that resembles a patchwork quilt or an area rug, something with a Southwestern look, an afghan featuring pastel shades on a black background, an extra-large Snuggle Size to share with someone snuggly, and an unexpected assortment of striking colors and one-of-a-kind designs.
My designs evolve as I make more and more afghans, try more and more new things, and now I’m making a Next Step style. It uses 1) two sizes of squares in one afghan, 2) more multi-colored yarns, with two or three together in a hybrid square, and 3) wider borders, usually with several lines of accent colors. Of course it takes more time, but the result is something unique.
I use Red Heart acrylic yarn, which is sturdy and washable, and make three basic sizes -- lap size, nap size, and snuggle size. Everything listed in the shop is finished and ready to ship. I ship by Priority Mail, which will reach just about anyplace in the lower 48 in 2 or 3 days. My home is smoke-free, but I do have a cat.
