Help with measuring/seaming
I am STILL working on the Kenobi jacket (over 2 years later.) I am on the front where you start shaping for armhole, but I have a bit of a problem. The pieces are done in patterns, like the left front is moss st, then reverse st st, then 1x1 rib, then 3 border stitches. It will be eventually seamed to the moss stitch side of the back. The problem I have is it says to knit until the piece measures 19" (the same for the back, of course) and then start shaping, but I'm getting a different measurement in the rev. st. st section, the moss section, and the rib section and now I see the same problem with the back (it was blocked 2 years ago, didn't quite hold the blocking in my UFO drawer).... what do I do? I would presume I could just try to line up back and front to make sure the shaping matches up, but is that "safe" to get a nice smooth seam or might I run into trouble after blocking the pieces? This is my first even close to finished garment, so I'm at a loss.
Thanks so much!

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. - Marianne Williamson
