Goldilock's dilemma

I'm up to that bit on Parcel where the instruction say "divide for armhole shaping". For me this is a terrifying moment. I find it so hard to tell whether I'm in the right spot or not, which led to many of my earlier garments being too long and most of the recent ones being just a tiny bit shorter than I would want. For this garment its complicated by the fact that I'm knitting in alpaca, which theoretically will grow on washing, BUT my row gauge actually shrunk a tiny bit on washing. So, I've measured and remeasured and I can only hope that this will come out not to short, not too ling, but just right.
