Talk Like a Pirate: The Crochet Edition
No matter what you crochet, you can make it a fun silly day by speaking pirate while you craft. Some suggestions:“Ahoy matey!” This is a good pirate hello greeting to say when you arrive at your crochet meetup.
- Use your crochet to flirt: “Avast, me proud beauty. Do ye like my hook?”
- “I must frog this smartly.” Smartly means quickly in pirate speak.
- “Shiver me timbers” is a good response when someone shows you their craft work.
- “Arr!” A useful, versatile pirate sound.
And make sure you stop calling it your stash and start calling it your booty!
