I'm a software developer, so I like to make things. The fact that some of these things involve yarn, fabric, or wood rather than code doesn't make any difference to how I feel about building things. For the most part my programmer friends think I'm strange for making woollen things, and my craft friends think I'm strange for working with computers!
Since spending more time online and getting to "meet" (in a virtual sense) more people, both crafters and coders, its becoming clear that I'm not alone on this one. First I saw a this thread about crafts on the phpwomen forum and then I also noticed that on ravelry (a social network for knitters. Yes, really) there's a group for PHP knitters.
Are you a geek who also makes non-code things? Let me know :)
