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 Ursula Yak Sock: 70% Merino; 20 Yak; 10% Nylon. 437 yards / 100 grams per skein (base is a warm gray to start, so takes color a little more boldly!)
The Turn of the Screw is an 1898 gothic horror novella written by Henry James. Through atmospheric language laced with dark imagery, an unreliable narrator recounts the tale of two unsettling orphans, malicious spirits, and an incredibly naive governess in a looming estate near an ominous lake. The story influenced many subsequent works of literature and has been adapted numerous times for screen and stage, with the latest addition being Netflix's The Haunting of Bly Manor.
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 February 8th.
Signups will close when spaces sell out, or, at 11:59pm EST January 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.
GHASTLY10 to receive the club at 90% of the regular price
GHASTLY20 to receive the club at 80% of the regular price
Contactless Pittsburgh Pick Up or Delivery
If you'd like to pick up your yarn club instead of receiving it in the mail, use code PGHPORCH at check out, and I'll reach out when it's ready to coordinate a pick-up time with you (in Greenfield, between Squirrel Hill and Hazelwood)
If you are within 3 miles from Greenfield, enter PGHDELIVERY for contactless delivery to the address you use at checkout, and I'll reach out when it's ready to coordinate a time for my fella to drop off your yarn.
NOTE: There's an issue with the cart where you can only apply one code. If you're using another code for pricing and also need a delivery/pick up code, you can write in the Order Notes field instead, and I'll refund the shipping fee. Thank you!
Additional disclaimer: Pick up and delivery subject to change when/if life resumes a more hectic pace in 2021, but we'll do our best to roll with the punches!
