OK, I gave it a try and the two sides turned out even.
It may help to put a marker on each side of the center sts although the gap is a also reminder that you're one stitch away from the turn. That is, in each row you work one stitch past the gap.
In the second dec section (p2tog), a marker for the center may help keep you from crossing the center line as you decrease each side. That may help keep the two sides even.

Ok well thank you for doing it too. I'm still not quite sure how I'm messing it up that badly but I also don't quite understand what you mean as to where to put a marker for the second dec section. I have used a marker for both side cables so I didn't mix it with the other sts and I had done the same thing for the center cabling for the same purposes.

Maybe counting rows with a row counter or jast checking them off on the pattern would be easier than a marker. Anything so that you don't knit an extra row on one side and then be short a row for the other side. It seems easy to do once you get into the rythm of knitting or purling and turning.

Oh ok, I'll try doing that. Thank you for all of your time and help.
