KH Monthly Challenge--September
September, already!!! (I'm actually writing this in July, and saving as a draft, so i don't forget my idea!)

September 24th marks the 100 year anniversary of the declaration of the USA's first national monument--Devil's Tower, in Crook County, Wyoming. I think it was featured in the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Anywho, in honor of this event, your challenge for September is:

Knit something Devilish

Teddy Roosevelt, who declared Devil's Tower the first national monumnet after the Antiquities Act was passed, was an avid conservationalist.... so let's conserve our $$ by making the KAL a Stash Buster as well.

Since it will be getting chilly soon, I will be knitting the "Little Devil" hat from S&B. If you don't have the book this pattern from knitting pattern central looks very similar.

This KAL is going to be open to everyone's interpretation, so GET CREATIVE. Since we're stash busting, I'm looking forward to seeing lots of small things... socks, wrist warmerws, hats, hand warmers, etc. Unless you have a gigantic stash, then, go ahead, make a big ole sweater :-D

Don't get caught up in the "Devil" motif either, or limit yourself to pitchforks and horns..... go for flames, fire, red/orange/yellow... maybe something "devilishly naughty" is in order

Happy Knitting!!!

Have you ever noticed that CONSERVATIONALIST and CONVERSATIONALIST look a LOT alike? :thinking:

Hilde!!!!

*ahem*
Anyway I have a design for wrist warmers bouncing around in my head that would be perfect for this, unfortunatly they would not be stash busters. SO I may try something small but no guarentee. Why is it that the closer to graduation that you get the more work they give you?

I will be interested in seeing what everyone comes up with though!
