Using colours...

Am having trouble with using two colours - stranding the green colour on this reindeer behind the white when it's not being used, keeps making the stitching uneven. Have done this panel about 6-7 times already, and it is getting better as I keep the the colour behind looser, and it works better when I don't strand the green all the way along behind the white, rather just use it in the centre for the reindeer, but then it pulls around the edge of the design when I introduce the new colour. Am I doing something very obviously wrong?!
