Become a Lace Doctor

If only if only I were twenty years younger (or older), with no ties or need for a proper income, I could apply for this vacancy.

A fully-funded Doctoral Studentship in the History of Shetland Lace-Knitting!

I am posting this here in the hope that one of my readers IS at a place in their life where such a thing would be possible.

Because such opportunities are rare and beautiful things.

P.S. If you get it, let me know!

aarrgh! I could do it, I know I could, but ..... no degree, just a diploma and loads of experience! Plus a bit of knitting this past 35 years. ooh some lucky, lucky person is going to get this - thank you so much for show it here.

I sent them a note to ask if it was even worth my while starting the application process - but thank you *so* much for posting the link!
