Cheating On Your Diet

A fat-free, sugar free, zero calorie and nil carb treat for your fingers. Go ahead. Cheat on your diet.

This colorway was inspired by Angelika's love for cherry chocolate. (Can you see where this color combination also appears?) Cheating On Your Diet has short runs with high contrast and will make up great in small projects. Consider socks, hats, gloves, scarves and similar accessories. Cheating On Your Diet will match well with the solid colorways of Chocolate, Natural, Chino, and Cranberry. To reduce the contrast of this scrumptious yarn consider color banding with a solid.
