so confused

I just completed the back on my double v cardigan. I have to say, most of it was pretty easy and interesting to knit. The yarn is turning out to be quite lovely, and the drape of it is spectacular. Seriously. I never thought I'd use the words "drape" and "spectacular" in the same sentence but it really is. I'm excited to see what it looks like as a full sweater and not just a piece.

However ... the instructions for the shoulder shaping were SOOO difficult and confusing! Usually, when I read something the first time and it doesn't sink in, I just have to take a deep breath, and read it slowly, line by line, and it makes sense. These instructions did not make sense!! I read it again and again and nothing. I have no idea what I was actually supposed to do. So I just made something up. It seems to have worked. It looks kind of right. So I'm just going with it!

I'm going on a plane ride tomorrow, so I'm going to pick up my 2-at-a-time socks again - haven't touched these since Christmas. We'll see how far I get, it's a short flight.
