Did you know that Karen Allen, Harrison Ford’s costar in the new Indiana Jones movie is a knitter? The 56-year-old actress has been a knitter since the age of 5. She now owns her own fiber arts studio in Massachusetts where she designs her own scarves, hats, sweaters and shawls. She teaches knitting at Bard College and has also taught at the Kripalu center.

    I also read somewhere that she knit scarves for all her co-stars in the new Indiana Jones movie.

    I was just reading about her last week. Her designs are very interesting. http://www.karenallen-fiberarts.com/ I’m planning to check out her shop the next time I go to Great Barrington.

    That is so cool. I just wonder where she finds the time to accomplish so much. It is wonderful.
