Having recently seen the enormous Douglas Fir trees that are native to the Pacific NW, I was stunned by their majestic size. Tall beyond belief, they reach to the heavens in a swath of green. The happy green of The Plucky Knitter’s Circa 1962 colorway immediately carried my imagination to a Doug Fir forest whose trees were decked out with a full complement of birds and creatures in fine holiday fashion!
