CRAFT: Cozy Up to Yarn

Lion Brand Yarn

As everyone reading this surely knows, this Saturday is Talk Like a Pirate Day. Well, maybe not everyone knows, but I knew and I’m excited. And I was even more pleased when I spotted these knitters in my Twitter feed today. They seem to celebrate the buccaneering lifestyle year round, and add the element of yarn. Good on ye, maties!

They’ve got free patterns and a gallery of projects, too:
