It’s a Pirate’s Life

Fifteen men on the dead man’s chest — Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!
Drink and the devil had done for the rest — Yo-ho-ho, and a bottle of rum!

Meet The Captain, he of dubious morality and equally questionable sobriety. The Captain believes once the bottle has been freed of its contents, it can be used in two ways: as a weapon to break over an opponent’s head or as a pillow for a nice siesta 🙂

The Captain came to life last evening after spending a week and a half on the knitting needles. As soon as he opened his button-y eyes, he asked for a bottle of rum! Since there was none around the house, the floppy eared Captain had to settle for a bottle of wine instead.

This is The Captain before he opened the bottle: 

“What! There’s no rum?”

And this is The Captain after he finished the bottle: 

“You know that feeling you get when you’re standing in a high place with a sudden urge to jump? I don’t have it. Hic!”

This 14 inch tall knitted pirate bunny is a Debi Berkins design. It took me a week and a half to finish knitting him, not because the pattern was complicated or anything but because there were way too many parts to knit, sew and press and I have an attention span of a five year old 😦 But if you have a slightly longer attention span and want to make your own seafaring bunny, you can purchase the pattern here.
Okay, one more pic before I go. This will be the last one. I promise 😀

Until next time, take care and make sure to hide all your bottles of rum. You never know who may come a-knockin’ on your door 😉
