Left Front Question

I'm working the left front (making the smallest size) and have just passed the cabled part on the bottom. What I'm confused about is this...on the back, I increased for the waist shaping 6 times over 36 rows. It looks to me like I will only increase one time for the left front. I'll work the two rows once (doing the M1 on the first row), then do 4 more rows in the pattern without further shaping. To me that means to not do the M1 again. Then I start to shape the neckline? Is this right? 6 rows after the cabled hem and I start to shape the neckline? I know I should continue doing the k2tog on the inside edge as this is what makes it slant. I'm just loving this pattern so far and am so excited to be working on it again!

I'm done I'm done I'm done!

Ok, finally FINALLY I am done with my Ivy!
It has been ten months by the calendar since I started. Of course I didn't knit every day and I took breaks in there to work on other projects, but still... 10 months!

So she's done... Check her out!

I'm so happy! I love this pattern and I love the result. I'm already plotting to start work on another Ivy, maybe with some lucious 100% pima cotton yarn I found at my local yarn store, in a yummy cream color.

Anyway... THANK YOU to everyone for their support and thanks especially to Glenna for the great pattern.

Hang in there, you who haven't yet finished... you CAN do it and it's SO worth it!!!
