Blue and Gold Team Colors yarn by Life's an Expedition
A lot of colleges, high schools and major sports teams use the team colors of blue and gold. Life's an Expedition has mingled these vaunted colors together in a tasteful yarn for your knitting pleasure.
Use Blue and Gold Team Colors yarn--exclusively from Life's an Expedition--to make hats, scarves, team cushion covers, soda pop can covers, headbands, ear warmers, notebook covers, cell phone bags, ID lanyards, bikinis, dorm room pillows, key chains, sweaters, belts and other essential gear.
Exhaustive research shows that the blue and gold in this yarn may be just the ticket for those of you who attend or support Marquette University, West Virginia University, Mississippi College, University of Alaska, Kent State, Texas A&M, Cheltenham High School, John Milledge Academy, Winter Haven High School in Florida, Hilo High School in Hawaii (crocheted bikinis, anyone?), Marion High School in Wisconsin, University of Northern Colorado, Cedarville University, Malden High School in Massachusetts, Smith College, George Washington High School in Pennsylvania, Simmons College, Wilkes University and Pitt Academy in Kentucky.
Consider this yarn for projects involving the U.S. Navy's Blue Angels, the US Naval Academy, the San Diego Chargers, Buffalo Sabres, Pensacola Ice Pilots or Summerland Sting.
Then again, some teams and schools say that their colors are Blue and Gold, but when you look at their uniforms online, they almost appear to be crayon yellow or even metallic gold. Be aware of this, as the gold in this yarn is more of a mustard gold, which is most prevalent. And the blue is sort of a dark royal blue or light navy blue. If you're familiar with the colors of the Los Angeles Dodgers, I am told that this is a dead ringer for Dodgers blue. So double check the colors if you are knitting on behalf of University of California Berkeley, University of Michigan Wolverines, University of Delaware, Dakota State University, North York Astros, LaSalle University, University of Akron, Tennessee Wesleyan College, University of Missouri–Kansas City or the Baltimore Ravens.
This is Life's an Expedition's fifth Team Colors yarn in a series and the first four are completely sold out. That's a giant hint, suggesting that you order as much of this yarn as you think you will need before it is sold out.
GAUGE: about 5 st = 1 inch, light worsted or dk, on size 6 or 7 US needles, but you should do a test swatch to make sure.
FIBERS: about 60% wool, 35% cotton, 5% nylon. 5 strands wrapped around each other. The wool strands are quite strong... and you are welcome.
COLORS: See incredibly lengthy explanation above. But in short, it's blue and...uh, gold.
