More progress, and some sun

The thing is starting to get its shape! Exiting. But there are some problems:

Maybe you can't see it, but I can. The elbow-to-shoulder increases give you some more stitches to play with, but they're not enough to follow the pattern, so you get these annoying, shapeless patches... I tried to do some stuff with them, (it seems to be a good idea to at least do CP rows 1 and 10), but as you can see, not too successfully.

Here you can see it in its full, washed-out glory:

I've actually done the armhole and moved into FP. And because of the teeny-tiny pattern mod on elbow-shoulder row 1 (remember, its CP row 10, not 1), I didn't have to do the modification detailed here, but could do CP row 15 on the short row 60, and then turn the work and use FP row 6. Note that after the short row, you have 'moved' the first pattern repeat of CP to the first/last repeat of FP. Confusing? Slightly, but not impossible.

Soon, it'll be time to cast on for the second half...
