Is the whitish yarn you're using for the final round the same brand of yarn you used for the inner rounds? It looks like it might be a bit lighter in weight, so that might be what's creating the wonkiness in that last round it looks to me like before that, your rounds look very even. Is that right? It's hard to say by looking if your tension is too tight or just right how does it feel when you make a swatch in rows? Do you have trouble inserting your hook into stitches, or does it go in just fine? Regardless, for your first squares, these look amazing! Congratulations!
