That's so cool! Maybe the truck stops are going to have to start carrying some yarn and needles!

Thanks. Due to the nature of our business a class wouldn't be practical, but perhaps a beginner's knitting book specifically written for truckers wouldn't be such a bad idea.

I'd say that's a very good idea. You could include a list of knitting-friendly truckstops, yarn stores on trucking routes, storage and bags handy for the road, etc.
