Re. Jesse's flames in SNB Nation:  This is my first attempt at any kind of sweater, and I'm not sure I understand the instructions for this one... can someone please clarify this for me?

I've finished the front up to the end of pg. 79 instructions.  Now, pg. 80:

"Joining a new ball of MC to left front, work both sides of neck at once and cont to dec one st at each shoulder edge EOR and, at the same time, BO 1 st from each neck edge EOR until there is 1 st on each side."

OK, what???

How does one "work both sides of neck at once"?  And I'm confused about how to dec here too.  I'm just not getting this...  Huh

Please help me, master knitters!!

I'm thinking I should start bringing my book to work for moments like this...
Anyway, without the book in front of me this is what I can tell you.  By this point I'm guessing you have some bound off stitches in the middle where your neck opening is going to be.  By "working both sides of the neck at once" they mean that for each row now, you'll actually have two separate sets of stitches on either side of the neck opening.  One side is still connected to your original ball of yarn and the other has the new ball.  So on each row you'll work across one side of the neck, drop that yarn, pick up the yarn on the other side of the neck and finish the row. 
Have you been working a decrease for the shoulders up until this point?  If so just continue that on every other row (EOR).  Without having the instructions in front of me I'm guessing it's something like a ssk (slip, slip, knit) on one shoulder and a k2tog (knit 2 together) on the other.  Hope this helps.

 Shocked

It is all clear to me now. 

Thanks so much!!!  You certainly did help!  This was probably obvious to all of you who have made sweaters before.
