Thanks so much for all the Crackerjack love! It’s been so great to know there are so many knitting baseball fans out there, and it’s been exciting to hear from folks who think this concept is a fun idea! I can’t wait to see all the different iterations of this.
I’m working on a free downloadable worksheet for the project – a place to plug in all your calculations as well as keep a record of your color key. In the meantime, I know that lots of you are already busy picking yarn. As I mentioned, I’m going with my beloved Stonehedge Shepherd’s Mill Worsted (a Michigan yarn!), though I’m suddenly on the fence trying to decide between two different shades of orange.
Cathi, a Colorado Rockies fan, is thinking she’ll go with an aran weight, and she’s decided to use two different shades of grey (instead of one grey and one white). Here’s the key she made:
On the left you can see part of the pattern that would have been made by following last year’s record. I think her scarf is going to look so great – don’t you just love Colorado’s colors?
If you are planning to knit a Crackerjack, what yarn are you thinking? Have you figured out which color to use to show wins and losses, at home and away?
(And any Tigers fans want to give me a hint about what shade of orange you’re using? I’m quite torn between the bright orange I showed you on Thursday and a much subtler shade I have on-hand).
