I went back and measured and it was dead on. I probally missed a couple of decreases..I think I will go with one size smaller size. I am petite, and things tend to be a bit baggy. So, I am thinking sloppy knitting, stretchy yarn, and being over generous with size as added up to a very big sweater.
My yarn is very stretchy..pima silk. I love it though!
thanks guys, I am going to start over tonight..one stitch at a time.
