It's blocking!

The shoulder caps turned out to be a pretty interesting operation, and my pattern adjustments only resemble the book diagram slightly. However, they seem to work for my adjusted sleeves and body, so no complaints. The sleeves are either going to be a "cool" bit too long, or a good two inches... Seaming will tell, but until then, I'm in denial. :-) I don't want to rip them out now that they're blocked and lovely. Once this dries and is all seamed, I have to pick up along the back of the collar and along the pockets for seed stitch borders. I tried already on the pockets and was having a hard time figuring out an appropriate number of stitches to pick up -- I kept taking too many.
