Ghastly is a monthly yarn (and book!) club for the first half of 2021 that celebrates six classic works of the gothic horror genre.
This listing is a preorder for Zilpha Worsted: 100% Superwash Merino; 218 yards / 100 grams per skein
Visions of Prague. Doomed romance. Experiments in reanimating corpses. And yet another unreliable narrator!
The Lifted Veil is George Eliot's rare foray into horror/science fiction. At 75 pages, it will captivate you for a short and surreal moment during any of these cold and lonely nights and leave you wanting more! It's a little sci-fi but very true to Victorian horror, with a clairvoyant narrator and the same sort of trepidation about questionable medical science that fuels Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.
How the Yarn Club Works
Each month a different classic work of gothic horror is featured, with a mood board that will guide the limited, surprise colorway.
Choose your yarn base: Sock (Solnit), DK (Carson), Worsted (Zilpha), or dark & dramatic Yak Sock (Ursula).
A little themed surprise will be included each month, and you're encouraged to read along (whether you participate in the yarn portion or not!)
Sign-ups occur for one week and ship next month.
When Do I Get My Club?
Your club package will ship (or be ready for pick up) during the week of March 8th.
Signups will close when spaces sell out, or, at 11:59pm EST February 22, 2020.
The Book Club!
All are welcome to discuss each month’s book selection, WIPs, or any other little bookish yarny thing in the virtual book club meetup held later each month. You'll receive the meeting code in your club package, and I will also share it on Instagram.
Yarn and needlecrafts are therapeutic and should be accessible to all. The following discount codes offer a sliding scale for the club.
