Spark raving mad
Yep. That’s me. Acting the joule. At my watts end… Ohm well, onto the knitting!
This probably wont shock you, but this week’s knit is based on electronics. In fact, one certain electronic device…
Meet Little Miss MOSFET. Joule have to be heartless not to admit she isn’t cute! Unless doing so would amp your style, of course.
So, what sparked this, I hear you ask? One of the senior engineers in my team runs a group for female engineers at my work – by proxy I am also included. It covers a lot of things from woman’s health to helping build soft skills like confidence with public speaking and leadership. There is also a yearly event which promotes health and wellbeing within the company.
This engineer was informed last thing Wednesday that she had a table for the event which was happening the following Tuesday…which seeing as it’s a group effort and there’s a weekend and everyone has lives outside of work… Left very little time.
I put together a leaflet, and some colouring sheets and supplied crayons just to get conversation going and, on Friday night, decided the table needed something more so whipped up Little Miss MOSFET.
She went down a treat, and got a lot of attention, which meant people looking at the leaflets and asking questions, so it was a success in my book.
Thats it for this week as it’s been a week – semi emergency vet trip for our eldest cat as we found a lump on the edge of her mouth. Managed the biopsy by having two of us pin her down, so now it’s the dreaded wait.
That’s a heads up in case I drop offline for a bit, despite having two viking related things I want to share with you all.
Until the next post, stay safe, take care, and look after yourselves.
