Ming Yi Sung Zaleski's crocheted nudes cause controversy
Tired of crocheting doilies and afghans? If you're after a bit of crochet inspiration you can't go kookier than the amazing crafty artwork of Ming Yi Sung Zaleski. But some folks didn't find her art quite so fabulous.

Her solution to the grumbling of the building's more grumpy tenants is brilliant and delightfully cheeky.See more of her amazing art on her website.
