Truckers knitting and quilting

There is an article in the Wall Street Journal about long haul truckers picking up hobbies like knitting. I think this is completely awesome.
I am one of those people you wouldn't think have a hobby like knitting. With the facial piercing, finger tattoos and hair that doesn't usually fit the norm, I look like the farthest thing from a knitter at times.
I would love to see more of the work of these truckers.
The gentleman in this photo, Kevin Abraham-Banks, is working on a sweater for his wife. That would be quite the gift, I think!
Like I've said before, and may others have said before me, knitting is a great hobby with which to pass the time. These guys are putting their down time to great use.

The original article is here.


  1. That is great, more power to them :) T.

  2. Our neighbor, when I was a kid, had his own lumber mill/shop which was his primary business. At night, to relax, he knit lace!
