WendyKnits Summer 2014 Mystery Shawl AKA Fire Shawl

Yes, I am doing one of her mystery shawls again. From this very cold Winter we had, I have realized that shawls with lots of lace aren't much good at anything but looking pretty. I am knitting this shawl because the lace is limited. I'm calling it the Fire Shawl because mine will be done in 3 colors, yellow, red, and orange.

Here is my progress so far on Clue 1:

Same progress made, but pinned out.

I am increasing the garter stitch as part of my modifications, because I want the garter stitch section to be a bit deeper/wider than the pattern calls for.

Yarn:Ornaghi Filati Merino Mix Fine
Color: 958/Yellow
Content: 50% Acrylic/50% Merino Wool
Care: Machine Wash/Lay Flat to Dry
Needles: US 4 /3.5mm
Pattern: WendyKnits Summer Mystery Shawl 2014
Modifications: Will be using more than one color and every other repeat I am increasing the garter section on all even rows - might be moving to every repeat.
