Wow, thanks for the comments

Thanks to everyone who commented on the Zig Zag photo! It's so encouraging to get such positive feedback from fellow stitchers.

Last night I finished one shoulder and the shaping adds more inches to the upper arm/chest area, so the horizontal motifs will be a little lower on the chest. Good thing, I was a bit worried that the armholes would be too tight once the sleeves were added.

Anyway, I finished one shoulder but am going to rip it out and redo it. I tried something new for me, shortrow shaping the shoulder and then seaming with a 3 needle bind-off. One suggestion was that you could wrap and turn to avoid potential holes.... well, I did a wrap & turn and didn't realize the wraps would show so much. So, I'll be ripping and reknitting without the W&T and I don't think I'm going to have holes at the turning point.

In spite of my knit-rip-knit experience with the shoulders, I would highly recommend shortrow shaping. You eliminate the challenge of seaming stair-stepped shoulder edges.
