I just did it at ONE end. Was I supposed to do it at BOTH ends of every row? It's becoming lopsided.

ETA: I am SUCH an idiot! I didn't see the word EACH end of needle...DUH!> Now to frog and re-knit!
I feel ya! Been there, done that! At least you now know what the problem was. I didn't have to add inches in width to my sleeves. And I have fat arms IMO.
