The patterns get less stars, because honestly I got this from the library for the ONE pattern I want to make (Into the Woods) and there is nothing else that interests me. The writing and clear easy instructions get more stars though. Her writing is funny and sharp, and she never apologizes for enjoying the "wifely arts" while still being a feminist. She admits that she is a new knitter, and she makes socks look easy because she breaks them into small chunks and even pauses to tell you when it wi ...more

Better than Sexy Little Knits. Good range of projects. I think the costume/fantasy play ideas are a little lacking, though. Mermaid? Not sure what's sexy about a woman with her legs fused together- kind of defeats the point, right? Well, I guess that might fall under the "to each her/his own" category. And the Red Riding Hood cape? I can pick up a cape pattern in any old book if I wanted to play Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf. When I pick up a book about sexy knits, I'd like to find ...more

The photos are great - they actually cause you to have thoughts like, "Hmm, it *would* be a riot to knit a baby-blue ball gag." I haven't made anything from the patterns yet, but once I do, I'll adjust my rating according to the actual process and results of following them...

First on the agenda for me would be either the corset or the red riding hood (but maybe in green). But both involve some serious felting. I mean, I have a washboard and all, but felting a whole corset? Or a riding hood/cape

I bought this for the bikini pattern on the cover and was surprised by how well it turned out and how practical its been. Next I modified one of the sweaters just a little and have gotten so much use out of it! I learned a few techniques from the book about altering patterns and shaping. It's creative and entertaining and, while I don't expect to make every pattern, it's really kinda cool!

This book has some really fun patterns, but also some that just make me shake my head. These types of patterns are fun to look at, don't take much yarn, but are more tricky to make because many are fitted and gauge is vital.
This book is absolutely hysterical. I want to send a copy to Amy Sedaris -> it's essentially a knitting book for folks into bondage and dressing up -> who knew that was even a category???

I can't believe I bought a book for two patterns. If you know me at all, you know which ones - but maybe I'll feel brave enough to try the clothing, too.

Lots of fun, more hilarious than practical as far as actual projects go.

the day I saw the page in this book on "condom critters", cute rad looking little owls for (you guessed it) taking care of your condoms, was the day I wished I had the patience to learn to knit.

A light hearted romp through the bedroom with your knitting needles!

Okay, so this 50+ year old woman was simply looking for a pattern to knit panties, when she came across the listing for this book. And this woman [dare I say it.... Me!] was so intrigued I simply had to purchase it!

Fun patterns for everything from the naughty little negligee to a ball gag!

Patterns to play the dominatrix, and patterns to play the bedroom - uh hum, whore.

Patterns are written in standard American English style, and
