shape neck/armhole
Thanks for any help anyone can provide. (I put my size in red so I didn't have to type out all the numbers)

Here's the Pattern and my question is below.
Shape Neck: Next Row (WS) Bind off 11 sts, p to end - (22) sts. Bind off 3 sts at neck edge twice, then 2 sts 3 times - (10) sts. Work even until armhole measures (8)", end on WS. Bind off 4 sts at armhole edge once., then 3 sts twice for shoulder.

I started with 33 sts on my needles. The WS is my purl row. If I rewrite this row by row is this correct?
1. Bind off 11 sts. P remaining 22 sts
2. Turn work and K 22 stitches
3. Bind off 3 sts. P remaining 19 sts
4. Turn work and K 19 sts
5. Bind off 3 sts. P remaining 16 sts
6. Turn work and K 16 sts
7. Bind off 2 sts. P remaining 14 sts
8. Turn work and K 14 sts
Bind off 2 sts. P remaining 12 sts
9. Turn work and K 12 sts
Bind off 2 sts. P remaining 10 sts
10. Turn work and K 10 sts
11. P 10
12. K 10
13. P 10 (until armhole measures 8")
14. Bind off 4 sts. K remaining 6 sts
15. Turn work and P 6 sts
16. Bind off 3 sts. K remaining 3 sts
17. Turn work and P 3 sts
18. Bind off 3 sts.

I thought this was correct but I haven't finished the last 5 rows and the armhole already measures almost 9"? eek!
