Actress Karen Allen is also knitting artist Karen Allen. A few weeks ago, she was featured on CBS Sunday Morning, not for her acting, but for her fiber arts business, which is located in western Massachusetts. I got curious, and found her website, and was treated to an avalanche of color and texture. She works primarily is cashmere, and combines hand and machine knitting, designing gorgeous garments that are inspired by ancient and modern textiles from around the world. She also has a retail shop, but her products are pretty pricey. But it doesn’t cost a thing to look, so check out her website, full of beautiful creations.
Word is, Karen owes Harrison Ford a scarf!
