Thanks to lovely K at Nothing But Knit for finding The Great American Aran Afghan for me. I have just bought it and downloaded it, and cannot wait to get started, as we knitters do. However, I will finish my Admirals Knot Sweater before starting this project.
All I can hear in my head are the words of Anna Madrigal “You always get what you want, you’re a lot like me.”
The Elusive Great American Aran Afghan…
Well, this is becoming more and more interesting as I search for this book or needle in a haystack as it is becoming. So far I am not doing very well, usually shipping is about $45 to $60. One lady on Ravelry had it for sale then when I messaged her she had “given it to a friend”, so that is a closed door on that.
I read on Knitting Paradise that a lady bought it from WHSmiths here in the UK for only £6, I thought WOW, that is a hot lead, but alas on WHSmith site, it does not exist, and she only bought it last year, WTF!. I have called Waterstones and the lady just could not find it because I did not have an ISBN number, god forbid a boolean search on the site.
In the town, there is a second-hand bookshop that holds vast stocks of old books and magazines, but even he could not get it.
I still have hope, and will keep looking as I am not one to give up easily, and K at NothingBitKnit has been keeping me on my toes with loads help.
