I did it!

The Skin of the Sea lace vest requires short row shaping at the shoulders. This is a brand new technique for me, although I have heard of it before. After reading the instructions in the pattern, and repeatedly watching a video I googled from Knitting at Knoon Designs, I successfully completed my very first Short Row Shaping. Oh yes, happiness is mine.

This is whole shebang laid out, pre-blocked or seamed. Along the lower left bottom I'm picking up the stitches to create the border.

Short rows -- to the right!
