Bygone Days Lace Club

Introducing the Bygone Days Lace Club!

Come take a trip back when times were simpler, of lazy days on the porch and swingin’ on a tire over the creek.

This club features 6 months of Goddess Knits designs paired with Decadently Divine yarn in colorways inspired by dusty things found in the attic. With each shipment you will receive an original, exclusive pattern, enough divine lace yarn to complete the project, and some extra fancy things such as beads, buttons, and ribbon, along with a coordinating stitch marker. All patterns, and colorways, will remain exclusive to the club for 6 months after the delivery of each monthly kit.
Projects will include fingerless mitts, a pair of cuffs, a hooded cowl, a collar, a shawl, and a fichu; not necessarily in this order. Yarns will also vary and will include wool or wool blends.
  • Club installments will be shipped monthly from May 2013 through October 2013.
  • Yarn will be shipped by fourth week of each month via USPS.
  • Yarns will vary from month to month and may include wool or wool blends.
