It takes a very good discipline to DO creative stuff and to keep WRITING about it! I’m not the type. My favourite subject at school was maths – maybe that’s why I like counting the stitches in crochet… but critical writing – 🙄
Anyway, I wanted to share my recent discovery – a wonderful and humorous crochet world of a Russian artist Yulia Ustinova. The piece below was inspired by her work. I was given lots of red yarn by a friend, and for a long time didn’t know what to make out of it, and then suddenly I thought that’s it would be perfect for a ‘Red girl’, which in Russian is synonymous to a ‘Beautiful maid’ (Красна девица).
She’s on a wire armature and can change positions like a real model.
She somehow managed to sign up to some life drawing classes, and was even invited to few temporary exhibitions at the Louvre. A fine example when your creation starts to live a life on its own!
And finally, few pix of the work in progress, because I like studying this kind of pictures on other people sites.

This is wonderful! I’ve been trying to do something similar and struggling with how to make the sharp curves like the heel. Is the foot done in one piece?
My gosh! So sorry I only just saw the comment! Yes, it was all done in one piece, I make sharp ‘bends’ in shape by reducing lots of stitches on one side and adding new ones on the other side of a tube.
I love this artist. Yours is amazing. Nice job. 🙂
Thank you Yolanda! 💐
