What is Pirate Knitting?
It's the gathering together of luscious Black Purl Lorna's Laces yarn, the even more luscious Johnny Depp, some chocolate, some Jamba Juice, and two friends who cast on together for the same project at the stroke of midnight across the miles on New Year's Eve, and knitting "together" throughout the day on New Years Day.The friends, of course, are me and the lovely mamma. The project is Walking Away Cascade socks from Fiber trends. You might recognize this pattern as the same one I made for my beautiful niece Stephanie for Christmas.
These lovelies are for me. The top picture is the front ribbing of the sock, and the bottom picture is the lace cascade down the back.
These are more than just mere socks. They represent healing and friendship and a determination that life doesn't just go on, it goes on in style.
Drink up, me hearties, Yo ho!
