To grab hold of the sheets when they hoist the sails! If it's wet and cold, you need something to keep your hands warm so you can grip the rope!

I was leaning towards the tricorn as my initial pirate project, but practical considerations in re: my hands this morning have caused me to start contemplating Snowball's Chance as my first piece of piratical knitwear.

I'm also thinking of redrafting the skull/crossbones designs. I think it would be cool to take a design from an old, true pirate flag (Blackbeard or somesuch) and translate it into a knit pattern. Of course he's probably rolling over in his watery grave as I type this.

That would be really cool!

I've had yet another setback on my hat. I finally got my cables and got the needle tips to fit (with some help from my dh), but I've discovered that there is no way I can do a provisional cast-on and magic loop knitting at the same time. That's just too many new things at once. I've tried several times and I keep ending up with a big mess. Sooooo, I'm going to get some 16 inch circs and use those.

Aaaarg, if I were a real pirate I would have just downed a tankard o' rum, wiped me mouth on the back o' me hand, and made those stitches line up and obey!
