ribbing from hell

Over the last two days I knitted, unkitted, knitted, unknitted again, then knitted the ribbing on the bottom of my raglan. Last night I bound off while learning how to cook lentils on Good Eats. I decided to make the ribbing two inches rather than one, then I noticed the pattern said to make it five inches... but I'm not doing that! I will end up with a mini-dress!

Tomorrow I will start on the sleeves. They're knit with dpns, but I need to tweak the pattern a bit because I want to add sleeve shaping. The pattern author gives a link with tips to do that, so I need to study it. I'm leaning towards decreasing needle size rather than actually decreasing the stitches. I don't know what method she recommends.
