Jane Eyre Shawl by Nikol Lohr
Now, I’ve knitted this shawl and wear it quite frequently, so I really should get some pictures up on the blog. Perhaps Jane herself would rather I didn’t show it off; it is functional like her with its faroese styling but it has a flourish of something special, too.
Rosamund’s Cardigan by Andrea Pomerantz

It’s in those chapters when she is wandering the moors that you truly see her worth.
Jane Eyre Tea Cosy by Loly Fuertes
