Camille and Brad are sock-puppets that live in a dusty old attic. They fill their days by exploring the storage boxes in their small world. One day they find yarn and needles and they create something that causes a nightmarish series of events to unfold... and Brad has been hiding something from Camille... a terrible secret that might destroy them!

Okay, I have to admit that when I saw the review request email this morning, I thought this was a joke. I mean, the words sock puppets and erotic are rarely mentioned in the same sentence. 😅

After looking it up on GR and showing my husband, he said I should definitely get a copy. And he was right, of course, because I was intrigued. 

Camille is a beautiful sock and she's in love with the equally beautiful sock, Brad. They live an adventurous life together inside a dusty attic, but the day Brad finds a pair of knitting needles, Camille is introduced to an unexpected world of bliss, betrayal and responsibility...

Yikes. What can I say about this story? It's short and I read it in one sitting, which was a good thing because once I started I couldn't stop.

I was so pleasantly surprised by this haunting horror tale of undying, obsessive love, and how it warps Camille's mind until she hatches one dark plan after another to get her lover back. She's tenacious and resourceful, imaginative and actually ends up showing quite a bit of kindness towards the monsters.

Don't get me wrong, this story is TOTALLY messed up. But it's also clever, funny and full of sewing/knitting/fabric puns that cracked me up.

I'll never think about knitting sessions the same way again. I really enjoyed this very strange and dark little tale. 🧦🪡

I have to thank the author for sending me a copy.
