KH Monthly Challenge: JULY
I can't believe I made it to July 3rd and forgot! Thanks to Debbie for the gentle reminder :-) And thanks to everyone else who looks forward to the challenges! (i feel loved)

SPECIAL THANKS to Sara who came up with a FABULOUS idea for this month's challenge: The Beach!

Even if I had toes, you wouldn't have stepped on them: this is agreat idea! (I was thinking of it for August, but I like it better for July!)

SO! Knit the beach! Beginners, there's a great shell purse on the patterns page. Let's see all those S&B knitted bikinis. Maybe a knitted beach ball?

Happy Knitting!

Cool! I'm knitting a booga bag. Perfect for carting the sun cream to the beach! And the trashy novel! The sandals, the swimsuit, towels etc etc etc!

Debbie, that's a great picture! Where are you. though???

FM, of course I have toes. A few of them anyway.

I live in Orlando. My sister is here from Texas and we just spend 3 days on the Gulf Coast..... getting back to central Florida just ahead of the hurricane! The picture is taken on Naples Beach.

:-) I meant where are you in the picture!! ;-) Debbie, what pattern is that? It looks like one from the site I'm using for this KAL.

I'm making the dolphin dishcloth pattern, but, I'm using the landlubber version. I'm going to attempt to make it coaster-sized. :thinking: I'm using MOP YARN!!! Yeah this stuff!!! My LYS sells it, it was super cheap :-) And I found some hemp string in my bead stash with sea shells tied/glued on it, so I'm going to try to knit that in for a border, or mayve add it afterwards. yay!

I am taking the picture!!!! We only do "neck up" at the beach and I couldn't figure how to knit that high! The pattern is from that same site! I didn't see the dolphin... that is SOOOOOO cute. I picked up some sea shells that have holes in them, thinking I might try knitting them on something :)

Okay, all, July is more than halfway over!!!!! I don't see a lot of participation here, so let's get a move on!
