Kicking Off Baseball Season with Yarn!

April 3rd, 2013

The beginning of April means the start to a lot of things: spring blooms, warmer weather, and longer days. But as any sports fan knows, the first week of April means one thing: Major League Baseball’s Opening Day. Want to show your support for your favorite team? I’ve compiled a palette of colors for all 32 MLB teams in one of my favorite team-spirit yarns, Hometown USA. Not only is it soft and bulky so that projects will work up in a few evenings by the fire, it also comes in every bold color you can think of to support your favorite teams and schools.
I was lucky enough to attend the New York Mets Opening Day on Monday afternoon, and I brought the Mets-inspired blanket I’m knitting in Hometown USA along, using this color palette below!

    that’s great :)

    I like the attempt. I’ve made more then a few Seattle Seahawks hats out of Key Lime and San Diego Navy. However, that Mariners color combo… perhaps it’s just better to admit defeat if you have no teal.

      Cascade 220 has perfect Mariners and Seahawks colors
