Can't help you with the short row question, sorry!

If I were either of you I think I'd be glad I'd not had experience with short rows in this pattern stitch. It's not a lot of fun, I promise you. Thanks for the link to the discussion, Sue, I knew it could be really confusing to use a name for the stitch pattern and decided that a link to the picture was worth 1k words. When I figure it out, I'll try to remember to let you know how it goes and what I learn in case you ever need to screw around with something so less-than-delightful to work with.
