Default Stealing a shrunk 3 handed sword

I couldn't find anything on this, and I need to see if the ruling was correct.

So I rolled to steal as a thief. After a successful roll I used Shrinking Powder on my opponents 3 Handed Sword, in addition to declaring that item my target.

My opponent wanted to play a Wishing Ring on the item to nullify the Shrinking Powder, and make the item Big again, and therefore immune to theft.

Here are my questions:

1. What order is this resolved in?
2. Do I get to complete my theft, yet end up with an un-shrunk 3 Handed Sword?
3. Does the Wishing Ring block the Shrinking Powder, even though the Shrinking and theft were, in my mind anyway, declared one after the other?

Once you roll, if you are successful, you need to pick an Item. You can't play a card in between, unless that card affects your roll.

The proper order of events is to play Shrinking Powder first. Then, your opponent gets a hint that you're planning to steal and probably plays his Wishing Ring before you can discard a card to power your steal. At this point, you can still steal, but not any Big Item,
