... I have been offered a 6 - 9 month contract to cover someone's maternity leave, starting 2nd January - Hooray! - and just in time before the redundancy money runs out. I've had a wonderful time not working (except at doing things I enjoyed!), but it's time to earn some extra money.
MLQKnits will still be running, as I have been careful to keep it at the kind of level I can maintain easily, and the new job will give me more time to experiment with new ideas, so I reckon it's good news all round ... :)
