So far this yarn has reminded people of
Popcorn, both buttered and toffee.
Icecream of all flavours, caramel, toffee, butterscotch and vanilla with any of the appropriate sauces.
Roast potatoes or tatties as we call them here. Ditto roast parsnips.
Marmite on toast.
Crusty bread, everything from brioche to cinnamon buns.
Cinder toffee/puff candy.
The common denominator?
They are all things which, as the Government, the Dieticians, the TV experts, and your Best Friend - if he/she was being scrupulously honest and not sharing the crisps/bread/icecream with you at the time - would tell you are Fine In Moderation As Part Of A Balanced Diet.
Not a very snappy name for a yarn though, is it?
I can just see it at Knit Night, you are happily bumbling along, chatting away when someone opposite notices that you are knitting with the most fabulous, soft, interesting looking yarn. They put down their knitting and lean over the homemade flapjack and the golden shortbread on the table to have a closer look, and they can't resist touching the fabric (this is sounding more and more like pr0n) before asking what it is.
"Fine In Moderation As Part Of A Balanced Diet", you reply.
Here endeth the homemade flapjack and shortbread enjoyment.
So, I'm not going to call it FIMAPOABD, you'll be please to know.
I'm naming it Naughty But Nice.
Because it is.
