This is my "Rockpile" 100% superwash merino yarn. Hand-dyed in "Bug Juice", the color designed by Rosemary (Romi) Hill for her Maia Shoulderette pattern which is the second picture. The Maia Shoulderette pattern is available at: www.designsbyromi.com. This yarn weighs 2 ounces and has 245 yards, and is considered a size 2 yarn. Recommended needles are size 1 - 3 US. Romi's Maia pattern takes 2 skeins. This yarn makes wonderful socks, shawls, scarves, baby things as well as many other items.

How did this color come about? Bug Juice was a mistake. While dyeing yarn for some Designs by Romi patterns - I made a mistake. The yarn definitely was not what I had intended it to be. Ugh. I immediately knew what I had done wrong, and noted it so I wouldn't do it again. Showing it to some of my friends, Rosemary carefully said she loved it and I told her she could have it. Rosemary said she would show it to her knitting group - and they loved it! Rosemary designed and knit her Maia pattern for this color. I liked the finished product so much I had to knit one for myself.

Why is it called Bug Juice? Well Rosemary knit this fabulous shoulderette, Maia, and showed it on her blog (www.rosemarygoround.blogspot.com), and asked her readers to help her name it - and Bug Juice is what they came up with!

Shipping is done by USPS. I reuse boxes, packaging, bubble wrap, peanuts. Minimal packaging is used for "soft" products.
