Hi KermodeMomma, All good advice above. One other thing you might try is almost no tension on the yarn. No grip, no tug. Cast on with the long tail or knit cast on which are pretty easy to knit into on row 1 and then lay the yarn around the needle to form the knit stitch. Don't worry about how to tension the yarn or about even stitches. Just keep doing this very loose knit stitch until you've gone seveal inches before thinking about keeping tension on the working strand.
