Meet Renée

That's right, Renée is a tiger pelt. A knitted tiger pelt, to be precise.

This gorgeous and exacting wool specimen was created, on three sets of circular needles over the course of about three months, by artist Ruth Marshall, who I had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing yesterday at the Museum of Arts and Design. Not in time to grace the pages of ASTOUNDING KNITS, alas, but in plenty of time to appear in the Fall 2011 of Twist Collective. While I'm busily writing her profile, visit Ruth and her ever-growing tribe of tigers, ocelots and snakes.
Ruth and a nameless - though nevertheless technically excellent - ocelot.
