"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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

In my opinion, knitted undergarments aren't particularly "sexy" unless they're knitted from silky, fine-gauge yarns. Because so many of the patterns in this book call for wool yarn and for large (US13) or fairly large needles (US5, US7), the book doesn't appeal to me. If you're looking for sexy knitted garments and undergarments, I would recommend either Knitting Lingerie Style or Sexy Little Knits.
As I said in my original review (posted in 2007, shortly after the book was published), I can see laughing over this book with friends, but it's not a must-have for your knitting book collection.
