Diamond of the First Water is now available to buy as a single pattern here
The prototype of this pattern was designed for my sister's birthday present last July. She's a writer of historical romance so this is named after late 18th/early 19th century slang for a woman of exceptional beauty and elegance. You can find out more about my sister's writing at From Darcy to Dionysus
And here are some of the 'in the wild' pictures my husband took at Dunham Massey
We found this really cool fallen tree. The shawl is displayed on the upended root system in most of these photos. The one where it's wrapped around the tree was achieved by me hiding behind the tree holding the edges - it was a very wide tree so I had my nose pressed to the bark and my arms fully stretched. I got more than a few puzzled looks!
