Arrrrrr..... I'm a pirate you see
Last year on "Talk Like A Pirate Day" I followed a link from one of the communities I stalk to the pirate related knitting. Found Pirate Queen's Booty Bag and decided that I had to have it. I think I started it in October? And finally finished at the end of March. The bag was extremely easy to make, double knitting bows to me. The thing that took so long were the straps. Oy. 17" on each side. While knitting this I tried to find someone else on the internetz who had pics so I could make sure I was doing it correctly. Try as I might the only thing that related to my bag was the bag pattern itself! Unfortunately the pictures with the pattern didn't show what I wanted to see so I just went with it. It turned out pretty well, I think. My daughter loves it (she has stolen it to carry Polly Pockets) and so do I. Dunno if I'd make another one just because of sheer size of the unfelted thing. Maybe if I one day run out of sock yarn. Ha! Heeeeeeeere's the specs.
