Kinky Knitter Creates Kama Sutra Inspired Tableaus

 

 

Knitting: It's not just for your frumpy aunt anymore. This is the battle cry being broadcast by Geraldine Warner, a.k.a. Trixie von Purl, via her new book "Knit Your Own Kama Sutra." 

According to The Huffington Post (link below), the execution of the idea was much more complicated than Warner bargained for when she dreamed it up.

"The knitted pieces are actually pretty straightforward, although the telephone (conveniently off the hook in the accompanying image) is a bit fiddly," she said. "The hardest part was getting the dolls into position and keeping them there, although it’s amazing what you can do with some pipe cleaners, wooden tooth picks and dowel rods. I mean, generally in life too."

As for the research she had to do on the piece, it was all part of the fun.

"I had lots of fun looking through any Kama Sutra books I could get my hands on (including a bizarre one with a joyless, terrifying looking gentleman strenuously holding each stance) to come up with the right positions," she told HuffPost by email. "I brainstormed the funniest situations I could think of, then retreated to my knitting boudoir for 5 months to make it all happen.

"As far as the knitting is concerned, I always like to challenge myself in terms of techniques and I think that comes through in the patterns," she said. "I’d probably say I adopt a similar approach to my love life. Ahem."

Below you will find some of the images in the book, all of which can be recreated by the sexually liberated knitter in your life.
