Jane Eyre Shawl: Latest Obsession

I've never read Jane Eyre but I watched the 2011 movie version with Michael Fassbender (another obssession) and Mia Wasikowska last week. Jane wore a simple rustic shawl, as seen in the screen shot above. It immediately caught my eye as it would any knitter watching the movie. As soon as I got a chance I looked it up in Ravelry and found this pattern. It's supposedly the closest to what is shown in the movie. I might have something in stash 2-3 Stitches West visits ago that would be perfect for this. It won't be as rustic looking but it'll sure be super soft. Nothing says homely and old spinster like a dark shawl on my shoulders! How fitting.
