McDonald's Gave Me the “Girl's Toy” With My Happy Meal. So I Went to the CEO.

Don’t tell parents to take their kids elsewhere or make burgers at home. Do you know what happens when Mom makes burgers at home? You know you’re going to McDonald’s once you’re a parent, yes you do. So make sure your kid can get they toy s/he wants, not the toy a corporation decrees s/he should have.

Episode 65 - Ran Martine Ran

Welcome to episode 65 of the iMake podcast. In response to a number of requests this is a special episode about my recent marathon run. Charles interviews me - it’s fun and he is a fab interviewer! There is a little crafty natter at the end so do hang on if you aren’t interested in the running stuff. More crafty podcasts coming soon, I promise.

It’s a popular hobby, practiced by people all over the world. At its most basic, it’s a loop of string and two pointy sticks. The loops can be combined in various ways to create a wide variety of things, from the practical and useful to the whimsical and just plain weird. In other words, knitting is a lot like coding.

`*k2, p2, 2/2 LC; rep from *, end k2.`

What you see above could be described as *a line of knitting code:* a set of instructions that you can use to execute a row of knitting. Combined with additional lines of code, these instructions (commonly referred to as a knitting pattern) can be used to create a recognizable item, such as a sweater or a pair of socks.

Knitting, like coding, gives you the freedom to create.

"The poor and the underclass are growing. Racial justice and human rights are non-existent. They have created a repressive society and we are their unwitting accomplices." - They Live (1988)

One of my all time favorite movies!
