Still trying!!!!

I was sailing on the left front and had made a simple change of adding 14 sts so it would cross over with no gapping as shown by model,I like to keep my tummy warm too!
Everything wa going fine,I thought I would have it finished that night whne I decided to check measuements again,well...it looked like it was was going to be bigger,much bigger so I had redo the thing again,bugger.Everypiece I hav done so far I have done twice,either I am just plain silly or I have bad luck running against this project!
Not to be defeated I am enjoying it immensly and have even ordered two more lots of yarn,some Rowan Aran Tweed and Jo Sharp Aran,one in a red tone(I hope) and the other in Alabasternow. Will decide later if both these go on to be the same pattern or just a variation.
No piccies till I have abit more done,the speed of other knitters is astounding and also encouragement for me as its exciting to see all these CPH in the making!!!

I haven't started the fronts yet, but I too am planning to add some width there as I'd like to be able to close the sweater!
