WIP: simple rug knit snuggle: TENSION PROBLEM?
Hi everybody!

Thanks for leaving feedback on my first FO, I really appreciate it. I am working on the project mentioned in the subject line, using size 8 needles and softy chunky acrylic from Bernat. I have attached two pictures of my WIP: the stockinette and the reverse stockinette. I have questions about my tension. On the reverse stockinette side, the rows seem grouped together with gaps between the groups. Is this normal?
On the stockinette side, the stockinette is raised up on what seems to be every other row. Is this normal or is my tension wonky? And if my tension is off/wonky, how do I fix it? I have not had this happen in my knitting experiments before--but I used different yarn. Any ideas?
