Lace-lovin' Librarian is learning to make Dorset buttons. I said I'd show her (and you) a photo of a paperweight that contains Dorset buttons, so here it is. My cousin Andrew brought it as a gift when he visited us in Zimbabwe many years ago. He lived in Dorset at the time, so the Dorset buttons really do come from Dorset!
On the pullover front, I've finished the first sleeve and am about to start knitting the second.
