The story is called “Knit” and it’s in issue 240 of Drabblecast. It’s a part of a Trifecta. The theme is “Family Unties.” Go and listen! It’s read by Ray Sizemore, who did an excellent job. Here’s the quote from the story on the site:
We bought our first yarn baby at a garage sale. The ends of its arms were frayed and its eye buttons dangled loose on bare threads.
This is my first podcast, so as you can tell, I’m SUPER excited. Yes, I’m so excited I’m resorting to using all caps. And look at the awesome illustration by Gino Moretto!
Other stories from the issue include “Divorce in the House of Flies” by Dustin Reade, “Wendigo Bake Sale” by Leslianne Wilder, and a drabble called “How to Deal” by Chris Schryer
I’m off to go squee some more. And please let me know what you think.
