Could it be that you need to work the shaping like the socks in this pattern? Where it says long rows. In this you you're working short rows and picking up a stitch at each end, kind of like what you're describing.

That might be a very good idea. The shaping this way makes sense in theory, and it's not a monster-sized sleeve, so it might save you trouble in the end.

I think you'll keep moving the short row wrapped stitch out by one stitch each time, until you get to the point when there's 5 stitches left at the ends that you haven't worked. Then you'll probably work two stitches before you wrap and turn, and then the final three.
