Anakana Schofield – Author of Martin John and Malarky

I just cast on 130 stiches to knit my first jumper. It’s supposed to be a V-neck jumper for my partner. However I have just knitted the first ribbing row to about stitch 98 and it was so incredible difficult I wonder if I’ll make it to row 2.

At one point I was struggling so hard, I had a Polar Explorer moment. Am I going to make it to camp one of the South Pole of stitch number 44 at all. I think there might be something wrong in this combination of casted on stiches, wool and needles and pattern. I think it should not be this tufty that one is invoking the polar explorers.
