What to name this?

Since you all have been so generous with your suggestions for the Month of Love yarns, I'd like to ask your input on another name. I was attempting to spin a "SpongeBob & Patrick" yarn, with handdyed yellow bamboo and pink soysilk. The bamboo didn't take the yellow dye as I had hoped and came out MUCH paler than "SpongeBob Yellow".

Well, here, I'll show you:

strawberry and cream -skein

So it's clearly NOT Spongebob & Patrick...what do you think it should be?
I was considering Strawberries & Cream...but my husband argues that the bamboo is too yellow to be "cream".
Here's the prize: The FIRST person to leave a comment with the name I choose will get 10% off any skein of BCB yarn. I'll pick a name Monday (2/4) afternoon and contact the winner, so leave as many ideas as you have and tell your friends! If you have problems leaving a comment, email me: blondechickenboutiqueATyahooDOTcom.

Thanks!

How about Westley & Buttercup? Otherwise known as "The Princess Bride"

firstly.. it's beautiful!

secondly, after staring at it for a while, it started making me hungry, heh heh.

so, my suggestion is "lemon cherry cheesecake"

mmmmmmmmmmmmm...

HA, I was thinking Buttercup, too -although the pink doesn't remind me of Wesley.

I can't think of a couple that it reminds me of .... for some reason it reminds me of Hello Kitty. Or Hubba Bubba.

Mmmm, looks delicious, almost like cotton candy! So, how about "Spun Sugar"?

That is a gorgeous yarn--I love the sheen, and the delicate, barely-there gold. One of my favorite books from childhood was "Ordinary Princess," and for some reason, that's what I keep thinking about for this yarn.

Something about how it was meant to be something else, but it just came out the way it is.

Thanks all!
I actually have a Westley & Buttercup yarn, I'll be posting it tomorrow!
For this one, I was hoping for another couple...so it can still be a part of my Month of Love Series...

hmmm, what about "sisters" ?

i mean, i love my sister, and she's a blond, and we both have rosy cheeks, and can wear pink :)

only other thing i can come up with...

What about Milo & Otis? Johnny and Baby?

Beth said...

Well, it just screams "girly," so how about "Sugar and Spice"

(and everything nice - that's what little girls are made of!)

Strawberry Shortcake

How about "peeps" (as in the marshmallow candies)

This might be too late in the day to make it into consideration, but somehow my first thought when I saw the yarn was Cheer and Funshine (the care bears). Its just so light and fluffy soft and warm...

I know I am past the deadline, but it made me think of Cotton Candy
