I know, you are all sick of hearing about the Dread Pirate Sam crochet pattern! But when you get a cute little lovable Johnny Depp inspired dirty pirate of your very own, you'll be thanking me that I obsessed over this.
So, if I am counting correctly I am up to needing to make a Pirate crew of 6. But Pirates have never been know for their counting skills.
So why am I not all jumping for joy and crocheting my fingers to the bone? Let's just say that I am glad I didn't stay up until midnight to buy the Dread Pirate Sam pattern. Interweave Crochet www.interweavecrochet.com still has the "Check back here September 12th for how to purchase this pattern." I know it's the 12th! Pretty sure it's September too. Arrrrrrrrrrrrr
Also, as a reminder, September 19th is Talk Like a Pirate Day. Go to http://talklikeapirateday.com/ for more info. You can totally get some help translating pirate speak.
Here are a few examples from them:
"Avast ye varmint" - Stop right there young man because you're in big trouble.
Weigh anchor!" - Let's go!
"Yarr." - I agree.
"Yarr!" - I see your point, and agree wholeheartedly.
"Yarr-ha-harr!" - You're right!
"Yarr?" - Excuse me, what did you say?
"Yarrgh" - I respectfully acknowledge that you are right and I am wrong
And a few for the work place are included also
"I don't know as I recall askin' ye for yer thoughts, ye scurvy bilge-drinkin' tar-merchant. Avast yer gob afore I keelhaul ye an' string yer bones from the crow's nest." - I didn't ask for your opinion. Shut up or you'll regret it.
"Avast, ye demon copy machine! Taste the wrath of my arse!"
