Silly question ...

Anyone have any idea where the beginning of the round marker should be before you do the waist decreases? When I was trying my Tivoli on again I pulled out some of the stitches and the marker. I have a vague idea where it was (a bit towards the back on the right side) but I wasn't too sure I had it in the right place before. Any suggestions appreciated!

I think it's halfway across the cast-on for the armpit.

That happened to me, too--I forgot about it being in the armpit and I put it at the middle of the back, where it had been at the beginning. When I went to do shaping, nothing made any sense! Then I remembered :)

Now that I think about it, you must be right. That would make it 44 sts for each side (untouched, for the 36" size) and 55 for the front and back. Now to figure out where that would be! Thanks!

You cast on so many stiches, based on your size, under each arm when splitting the sleeves from the bust. Just place your marker in the ceter of the cast on stiches (1/2 the number you cast-on) under your left arm.
