One good thing to come out of the recession is more and more people have extra free time, and they're using it to take up hobbies. Truck drivers, particularly, have been hit hard as the usual two-hour wait time between drives became more like two days.
The Wall Street Journal says, while evidence is anecdotal, lots of drivers are taking up knitting and quilting. It's become so popular that one Iowa-based trucking company started a sewing club. It encourages stitching drivers to show off their needlework by featuring it at its headquarters.
Profession aside, would a guy who knits or sews be a turn on or off?
