Arrr me hearties!

Avast ye scurvy dogs! This 'ere knit be not for the lily-livered. On me latest voyage I made a Jolly Roger sweater for the scallywag sprog o' an old school matey fer his first birthday booty. It be from the book Adorable Knits fer Tiny Sprogs by that thar wench Zoe Mellor.

Plunderin' o' the stash chest gave me some acrylic line t' weigh anchor, but them thar many colour changes be shiverin' me timbers, so t'were easier t' be simplifyin' it. Less ends t' sew in ye know an' more effective lookin' o'erall.

Now yer'll all be a-commentin' or it's the plank.




Ahoy mateys! The wee bucko's been sighted in his sweater o'er a cup o' grog. I'll be swappin' arrr for aw from now on.

What a lucky little boy! Maybe sewing in ends is almost as nerve wracking as walking the plank!
