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!
