Gradient Multnomah

I started a new knitting project last week with some of my Christmas yarn.  It's a Multnomah shawl in Freia Handpaints Ombre Lace.  I'm using size 6 needles and I'll probably make the shawl a lot larger than the pattern says.  The pattern calls for one 400-yd skein of sock yarn, but I want to use my whole  645-yd skein of laceweight, so I can get the full effect of the color changes.

It's knitting up pretty quickly so far, and the pattern is really easy to follow.  I came up with a clever stitch-marker scheme to keep track of whether I'm on the row with the yarn-overs or the row without them without writing down how many rows I've done.  I'm almost to the first color change in the yarn!
