It’s not pretty

Here are my adventures in wrapping rows for short row shaping. It's not pretty, so if you're at all squeamish, please turn away now!

The first two pictures show the piece (it's the back of the jacket) from two different angles, and so far, it's ok. If you squint, you can even see the shaping.

Now the thing approaches (this photo shows the true colour of the Froya Narvik, by the way) and you begin to shudder:

Yikes! See what I mean?

And this:

Now off you go and look at some pretty knitting instead! And no, I am not going to frog this. No.
