I think that's a great idea!

And did you you that you can have your blog printed into book form? I can't remember which publishing company does it, but they have software that will pull the text off of your blog and you add the pics. Or maybe it will pull the pics off, too.

Anyway, keep writing! :D

I watched a story yesterday on the news about a college professor that was teaching a class via You Tube. So I was thinking that you could do the same: "The Virtual Truck Stop Knitting Class". I'd watch.

That's not a bad idea but I'm hardly skilled enough to teach and besides, for a video I think someone less ugly would be a better choice

Oh, pish posh, you are not ugly! Actually, I have no idea if "pish posh" is appropriate here (I'm not sure exactly what it means) but I've always wanted to say (or write) it. Anyway, I don't think you have to be all that skilled for the show to work. You are a funny, personable guy knitting in a truck stop. That's why people would watch.
Maybe you're show could focus on beginner knitters?
