I'm still plugging away at the Leo's sweater pattern from knitty.com. It's taken me quite some time to get as far as I have. Not only am I a slow knitter, and don't have time to knit every day, but I have been taking breaks from it to work on smaller things too. I'm also taking my time with this project because it's not for me and I want it to be as close to perfect as possible.

Reattach yarn and work left neck and shoulder to match right neck and shoulder, reversing all shaping, using k2tog tbl and p2tog tbl decs in place of k2tog and p2tog.
Now, what's got me a bit confused is the first line of the neck shaping and the instructions after that. I've worked the first 51 sts of the WS row, bound off the center 19 sts and worked the remaining 51 sts, but that leaves my yarn at the left shoulder (it's on the right hand side when I turn the work with the RS of the fabric is facing me though). Basically the pattern suggests that the next row is on the opposite shoulder from where my yarn ended up after completing the previous row. I'm thinking that I will actually be attaching a new ball on the right shoulder and working those pattern instructions that follow, and then picking up the remainder of the ball that's still attached to the left shoulder and continuing with those instructions. Am I thinking too hard, or am I totally having a brain-fart and missing something completely obvious?
Any help would be sincerely appreciated. Thanks!!
