I didn't stretch the squares very well and I haven't blockedd them yet, but they really look more even than the pictures. For log 3, I used #10 size needles instead of #8, and I added 4 stitches more and that did the trick.

Wished I'd seen your note about log 3, I love the look of 3, but find it very hard on my hands, arms get tired and I have to stop while working on it. Then when finished it curls horribly. Didn't realize you could change needles sizes within the project without making the gauge even worse. My square is pretty lopsided, like many I see here in the pictures, so I'm adding logs to the other sides.. using the logs that tend to lay nicer were stretching is needed, and one on side that is wider I elected to add another log's larger then the first log 3 since I'm further along in the square (this being #8). Was thinking when I finished this log I would bump up a needle size for the 2nd square. Then compare the 2 and edge the first one assuming it won't be as large as the 2nd one? Would love your thoughts...if you care to share, my email, just use Slip Stitch or Log 3 in the subject line. Thanks, love your color choices also. I'm using odd stuff from my stash so there really is no color scheme.
