Well, according to this billboard, they enjoy yarn.

This photo was taken in the heart of the Capital, Port of Spain, right near Independence Square, which is the equivalent of New York's "Wall Street" in Trinidad.

And yes, I knit in Trinidad.

Mostly everyone else crochet's a lot of hats though.
Here is a picture of my Non-Fair Isle Vest in progress. I completed about 8 inches, before I split it at the 12 inch mark for the back and front.
