Pirate Booty Links

Did you know that today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day? Yep. There's a blog, pirate slang, German pirate slang, and (thanks to ABC) there's even a wife (er, wench) swap.

For us crafters, you can knit this felted booty-bag. The pattern is from the Web Wench is available as a .pdf HERE. There's KnitLikeAPirate.com, which appears to be under construction. And CraftyMinx has compiled a list of Craft Like a Pirate links.

Why do I know about this? I used to date a pirate. Well, not quite, but I dated a juggler, whose partner Walter dressed like a pirate. Walter and our friend Shea Freelove and the Humboldt Juggling Society were part of a juggling troupe who performed "The Adventures of the Jolly Rodger." For one entire year, I got more juggling and pirates than is good for any one person. So, avast me mateys, grab yerself a mug o' yer best grog and knit yerself a booty bag, smartly! Arrr!
