Is this because I'm picking up too many stitches at the end of the rows? I'm picking up a stitch for every row. I now remember that a good rule of thumb for picking up stitches along the row side is to pick up 3 stitches for every 4 rows.
For those of you who've knitted this (or have done any log cabin knitting) is this a common problem?
Thanks for the clarification. I'll have the rip this out and start over again from the first square. It just doesn't look good right now.
Also, where do you put the 10th strip? I have the center square and two strips on each side - that comes up to 9 strips. Adding a 10th strip goes against my "Monk-ish" ways of liking symmetry.
