It's a cold but sunny day. You put on your coat, your scarf, and your hat and head out to the forest.
Only a few leaves remain on the trees, but beneath your feet is a plethora of colors. You pull your hand-made scarf up over your mouth and nose and walk on, enjoying the crunch of red, orange, brown, and purple leaves beneath your feet.
After a refreshing hike, you head home to a hot cup of coffee and the comfort of your knitting needles--knitting a colorway inspired by the forest floor. ;-)
I dyed Forest Floor on Sock Perfection, which is perfect for everything from socks to shawls to sweaters and beyond. It's made of extra-soft superwash merino and nylon.

The last photo shows a great fall fade combo. The colorways from left to right are Afremov's Farewell to Anger, Monarch Butterfly, Forest Floor (this one), Autumn Leaves, The Winedark Sea, Sleepy Hollow, and Aubergine.
I included two photos of a hat I knit using Forest Floor on Wonderful Worsted to give you an idea of how it can work up.
