Guess which actor I saw knitting on TV yesterday???
ALAN ALDA!!!!!!!!! Yes, he really was knitting on an old M*A*S*H episode!! Couldn't believe it. Even my 19 year old son mentioned it. He said, "Hey mom, look at that! Is he really knitting???"

Thought that "knitter sighting" deserved a mention here!!! What other actors/knitters have you noticed lately??

1. Alan Alda
2. Valerie Bertinelli (knitting in the round on a Hot in Cleveland commercial)

Don't know who she is exactly, (I think she was in the movie "Mama Mia") but Amanda Seyfried and Ellen Degeneres talk knitting (and show off their respective FOs too!) on an episode of Ellen.

I know! I loved when Ellen said, "I've never seen a sparkly alpaca in my life."

I think I saw Betty White knitting on Hot in Cleveland once, too. Just saw the video! Funny!

that was far more gracious than what I would have said - which would have been, " You knit in alpaca for a vegan?!" Hand it to Ellen for being so considerate.

My celebs seen knitting sightings include both Ellen Pompeo and Katherine Heigl in separate story lines on Grey's Anatomy.

She was also in the Tina Fey movie 'Mean Girls (very,seriously, funny) and in Big Love, the HBO series about the Mormon guy with three wives, she was one of the daughters. And, she's portraying Linda Lovelace in the movie 'Deep Throat.'
