Afghans for Knitters

Our trunk show from the Berroco Comfort Knitting & Crochet Afghans book is only at the shop through Monday of next week! These samples have been so inspiring that many customers have added an afghan (or two) into their queues this week. I already highlighted the crochet ones in a previous post, so this one is all about knitted ones.
