I brake for quilting.

I just found this Wall Street Journal article through the Craftzine blog, about how some long-haul truck drivers are discovering that knitting and quilting are great ways to pass the time between deliveries. It is nice to see that folks not traditionally (at least in modern times) associated with handicrafts are finding them enjoyable. Now, if only they didn't feel the need to hide their hobbies from other truckers who might think it girly.

Yeah, the only other time I'd seen a guy knitting was at a "hippy-like, greatful dead-ish" outdoor concert. I thought it was cool even then.
