Wouldn’t it be fantastic to have a cultivation plot full of fresh, crispy carrots?
Unfortunately, I am not blessed with green fingers. The carrots I tried to grow were eaten up by small maggots even before they were ripe, hahaha!
So, if I am to enjoy any carrots, I need to go to the market and buy them.
Or, I can knit myself a pair of carrot socks with Limmo-design’s fantastic hand-dyed yarn!

The sock’s circumference round the foot is
15.5 (18, 20) cm / 6.25 (7, 8)”,
