Q&A with Ezwriter

Spalover asked:
Love the colors you choose. This is not bad for your first go at stranding. The puckering is caused when the yarn that carries across the back is too tight, major number one problem with all first time stranded projects. The logs will actually be proper size when you get the hang of carrying the yarn more loosely. Yours' aren't nearly as puckered as my first stranded project was. I hope you try with these same logs again, because when you carry the yarn loose enough I think you will really be pleased with how they look next to the other logs.
Ezwriter answered:
Thank you for that information! I'm starting another square today and hope to get better results. You are correct, this is my first stranded project so I'm noticing a better result even in the first square....
