"Ms. Lohr's beautifully illustrated and coyly annotated book, "Naughty Needles," could be a 50's pinup calendar for wool fetishists. The tableaus she presents are provocative in a retro way, mixing Betty Boop va-va-voom with Doris Day innocence." -The New York Times
"This is not mere peekaboo. We're talking full-on seduction mode--fishnets, straitjackets, whips, and plenty of racy lingerie." -The Village Voice
"From start to finish, the book is filled with wickedly sexy pinup color photographs of hip-looking girls and guys in various demonstrations of the naughtily knitted product." - SFGate
Naughty Needles is a hilarious, yet very sexy ode to the bondage/pin-up days of the '50s and 60′s. ...some very cool, well thought out knits that make a girl proud to not be one of those emaciated models of today. -Vickie Howell
