Real Men Knit

I found this article about Truckers who have taken up quilting and knitting.  Some have discovered that it is a great way to make use of the loads of down time that they have on the road.

I love this image.  Makes me think of the sailors of old who used to knit on long voyages.  While the history of how and where knitting began is not known, there are many speculations.  This article gives a great overview.   Sailors were big fans of knitting, since it was small, portable, and gave them something to do on long voyages, the knowledge of knitting spread around the world, following trade routes.

Perhaps it will now follow truck routes, with yarn shops set up along the way.
