About the Author:

Trixie von Purl was born Patricia Purlton and came to fame in the 1960s when she had to flee to India after a scandal involving a fling with a famously full-lipped rock musician of the time (hint: he wasn't in The Beatles). It was in India that she became fascinated with the Kama Sutra, and for a brief time changed her name to "Indrani," believing herself to be the incarnation of the Queen of Heaven. Trixie eventually moved to California and turned her attention to the burlesque scene, teaching today's well-known burlesque stars everything they know. This is when her love of knitting got the better of her, and she started to combine the craft with her once-favorite subject. Trixie now lives in Paris and can often be found entertaining knitting salons with stories about her colorful past.

Review:

“Awesomely-intricate, to the point of beautiful weirdness...” (Elle)
