Tiny Pirate

Winning caption by Gargoylegrl:

A tiny pirate I may be,
I’m nae much larger than a flea,
but I know me alphabet by far,
especially me ‘aye’s an ‘arrr’s!

Sometimes I feel like I’ve already knitted everything under the sun, and then I think of something super obvious that I haven’t yet made. So last night a knitted tiny pirate came into being!


Get your ARRs at the ready: it’s a tiny pirate caption contest! Let us know what this little guy’s personal pirate-y catchphrase is in the comments (one per person please), and we’ll pick our favorite on Monday.

Because a tiny pirate is on a very fishy diet, the winner will get the Tiny Sushi Bar patterns !

  10. Arrr!!, Im a tiny pirate who lives in a tiny island far away from here,
    where you are invited to dine with me

  12. There is still something under the sun that you haven’t knitted: a flamingo!

  15. Tiny pirate walks into a bar. (He has a wooden eye) he sees the beauty of a pegleg barmaiden, forgets his motives of getting rum, and asks her if shed like to dance.”would I?!?!” (Pronounced ‘wood eye’) she responds gleefully. Taking offends to whet he thought was a snide remark concerning his lack of eye, he storms out of the bar, spitting “peg leg!>) over his shoulder.

  17. There once was a miniature pirate,
    Who hated seafood; never tried it.
    He thought it was gross, the sight made him repulsed,
    And the health benefits, he didn’t buy it.

    The the food on ship ran one day ran out;
    The pirate fussed and began to pout.
    Thought it wouldn’t be fun,
    But once dinner was done,
    He found ” Yummy” was all he could shout.
