Short rows

Still on knitting. I'm trying out the short row technique on this pattern: Short rows baby jacket

It doesn't look too bad…Using the grey Froya Narvik 100% wool (no indications of any allergic reaction, thank you) with 3.75mm needles. The lightbulb hasn't yet gone off in my head for this technique, though it seems logical enough. 3 ways to wrap, only tried one yet.

Here is how it looks so far:

I think I'm confusing myself because I'm trying to work simultaneously from the pattern as well as tutorials for the technique from the original site, from knitty.com and so on, plus there's some wrapping instruction in the pattern as well. Too many teachers.
The shaping is happening, but I don't think it would stand up to closer scrutiny.
