I'm having an issue with tension. Will some of the tension issues disappear when blocked? Is there a trick to the corners with magic loop?

Beautiful! Is that pale gray with the red? I see your tension issue with the edges. Blocking will help. It looks like you need to be pulling the first stitch tighter with each change. When using magic loop, I will check my edge on the second stitch so I know that it really is the tension that I am hoping for - or I will have the option to still adjust.

Thank you Sunne for your reply. Yes, they are a silvery grey with red, very pleased with the colour choice. I guess I'm always afraid to pull too tight when the stitch is on the cord for fear I won't be able to get the needle in, practice, practice. One mitten finished! On to the next. I found some of the tecniques quite a challenge, hopefully I'll do better the second time around!
