    I can imagine the smell of the rosemary. It’s bound to keep any investigating moths well away!

      Yep, I’m thinking now I’ll stick a few sprigs of rosemary in my sock drawer. It’s one of my favourite herbs. ๐Ÿ™‚

    ooh, rosemary scented socks sound fab! Might try that!! Nutkin’s a great pattern, and yours look decidedly edible in that colourway ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks! As much as I’ve loved knitting with the nutty brown yarn, I’m thinking my next socks will be right green. ๐Ÿ™‚

        Bright. Bright green. Not right green.

    Every green is right green!! I love your socks but I love the name better: most amusing!! I never knew how lovely fresh rosemary smelled until I grew a volunteer. (Which sadly died)
