KH Monthly Challenge--JUNE
Alright KHers!

The submissions for April and May were FAB-YOO-LOUS, but now it's really time to step up to the plate.

In light of our recent Memorial Day and the upcoming Flag Day, The Monthly Challenge for June is....
Knit Americana .
And the added bonus is that your creation will be all ready for display when Independence Day rolls around next month!

I'm going to try to fashion some accessory to wear for 4th of July... some red white and blue star-shaped pins, maybe a matching scrunchie, a visor..... Add red white and blue fun fur to a pair of flip flops! Maybe you can knit a flag pin, or felt a change purse, or add some colorwork to your summer tank top! The possibilities are endless... I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!

Okay. So you're not an American. Or you wouldn't be caught dead commercializing such a sacred holiday. Or red white and blue do not match your skin tone. Or you think my idea is dumb.. FINE! Here's an alternate assignment JUST FOR YOU:

Knit Something June-ish. [size=3] Here's some inspiration.....
Gemini: May 21 - June 20
Cancer: June 21 - July 22
Birthstone: Pearl
Flower: Rose
AND June is
* Adopt-A-Shelter-Cat-Month
* Audiobook Month
* Candy Month
* Dairy Month
* Drive Safe Month
* Firework Safety Month (June - July 4th)
* Flag Month
* Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Month
* Gay and Lesbian Pride Month
* Iced Tea Month
* People Skills Month
* Rose Month
* Safety Month
* Scleroderma Awareness Month
* Send A Rose Month
* Turkey Lovers Month why isn't this November??
* Vision Research Month
* Zoo and Aquarium Month

Now I'm, not sure exactly how you'd knit People Skills, Scleroderma, or Vision Research, but hey, maybe you're more creative than I am!

There should be something here everyone can do! I expect to see full participation from Amy and all Mods! And act like you're having fun, darn it!!! Let's start :XX:

I'm back!
