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 used my Sparkly Merino Sock base, which is made of 92% superwash merino and 8% sparkly lurex. It's a lovely base for shawls and cowls and hats.

Forest Floor would look wonderful with Ochre and Ode to the West Wind as shown in the last photo.
