In the Woods

When I saw this yarn I had to knit something with a woodland theme. I saw a dense evergreen forest with old ferns and fir cones gathered at the base of the trees’ massive trunks, fauns peaking out from among the foliage, and sunbeams shining down between the branches illuminating the forest floor with spots of sunlight.

Pattern would be lovely knit up in either cobweb or lace weight yarn, in a variety of colors: dark woodsy greens, deep browns, dense black, or golds touched by the sun.
