Traveling Woman

I love this shawl, don't really care for the colours though. I think I'll overdye. I took these photos at night, so they're not all that wonderful, but I needed to get my post in for today.
It was a fun and fast pattern, and I was adding up the stitches for NaKnitMo, it sure seemed daunting towards the end with a couple hundred stitches per row.

Pattern: Traveling Woman
Yarn: AraucaniaRanco Multy
Needle Size: 4mm
I really liked this pattern, the stockinette was nice to sort of get into it, and the lace was super simple and mindless. It's a little smaller than I usually make my shawls, but I guess I'll be wearing it as a scarf more often than not. The pooling is unfortunate, I hate camo. It looked so pretty in the skein, and I'm sure if it were a smaller project it would've striped beautifully. And as the shawl got bigger, the pooling became less camoy.
The second photo is truer to the colours.  I'm still undecided if I like them.
