Why Poldark Is Like Knitting

Spoiler alert! We reveal the knitted truth about Poldark!

The new series of Poldark is about to hit our screens, and we’ve discovered one of the show’s biggest secrets. Our favourite hobby is the true inspiration behind the popular drama. It’s obvious when you look at it. We can’t believe we didn’t notice before!

An unexpected return…

Buried at the bottom of your knitting bag, lost, lonely and forgotten, lies that sock you started three years ago. About the same amount of time that Captain Ross Poldark was away fighting in the War of Independence. Coincidence? We think not!

 

But everything has changed

While the project was hidden from sight, the yarn you’d set aside to finish said socks has been used for something else!

 

The only solution is to take your frustration out on some harmless crops

Feel the release.

 

Then someone else catches your eye

A rare beauty. A lace shawl in fine cobweb weight yarn. You know it’ll take work but you can’t resist the challenge.

 

Bubbling with excitement for your newest project, you celebrate…

Cheers!

 

...But this pattern isn’t as tame as it first appeared…

You didn’t see that coming!

 

...and drink and complex knitting rarely mix

The morning after the night before shows the error of your ways… and all those dropped stitches.

 

Then an old face makes an appearance

While hunting around for your stitch markers and row counter, you rediscover THAT sock. Awkward.

 

It’s no good. You’ll have to ask for help.

Fear not though, your local yarn shop is full of knitting experts.

 

And you’re soon back on track

We bow to the knowledge of the staff at our local yarn shop.

 

Finally, it’s finished and at last, you can say, “it’s all mine!”

Sorry. That was just a shameless excuse for a pun.
