This article was in the Wall Street Journal this morning. Guess truckers have more time on their hands. And are taking up quilting & knitting.

My dad is a retired truck driver, I forwarded him the article. He will find it interesting.

I spent about a year driving, back when you often had a load planned to take before the last one was dropped. Saw quite a few guys with different handcrafts, even crocheting and knitting. In Pennsylvania there is (was) a truck stop that had a large room full of yarn, needles and patterns for exchange.

I read that same article. It's about time some of the other truckers started talking about their craft hobbies. Many of us have been doing it a long time, but most just wouldn't admit to it for one silly reason or another. :mrgreen:
