Free Downloadable June 2020 Calendar

Welcome to June, everybody! To me this month will always be one of growth, gardens, and of course, GREEN! I planted a bunch of snap peas this year and they have been growing so dang quickly. The highlight of my days has been strolling outside, sitting in the dirt, and seeing how much they continue to grow and grow. It’s such a small thing, but it makes me so very happy. Speaking of happy things, it’s calendar time!

    Thank you for this take, I enjoy the green (although as a queer woman, a rainbow for Pride would have been lovely to see) but I think you are absolutely right to notice the hands- white hands. At best, it was clearly not considered.

    I also wanted to agree with that response from PH! I havent been using these backgrounds too long, but for about a year, have loved them so much! Im not too off put by the color scheme– allthough green does seem a bit dreary for june? seems more fitting for march-ish. The White hands did oddly do it for me howvwer.. it seems very petty of me, but it feeel very petty to feel, especially as them mentioned above, given the times an all.. I feel like you at least could have had different “shades” to download — even if you had to edit the contrast/color yourself because you couldnt get real models, etc.– considering this is the first once thats ever even had hands/human parts in it..

    Again I understand this sounds like a petty complaint, and I know that a persons business does not necessarily need to appeal to certain groups of people. But its always nice to feel theres effort in making everyone feel accepted/welcome.

    Thank you for this feature. I love this feature. The greens make me think of growth and all things new and fresh. I think that feeling is especially needed this week. 🙂

    HI- New to Knitpicks and love this feature. I am also partial to greens and will enjoy this all month. Are there links to the yarns pictured?

    I have been a huge fan of these monthly calendars for years. I have to admit that I am deeply disappointed by this month’s calendar.
    I was hoping to see something bright and cheery. It’s June, I was hoping to see a rainbow because it’s pride month. Or anything that is bright and happy because the world is a gloomy place right now.
    Instead there was a gloomy photo of green yarn. That’s fine. I would normally not complain about that.
    Then I saw the white hands in the image. In all of the years that I have been downloading this calendar there have never been hands. With all of the racial injustice happening now, why do you decide to put white hands in the calendar? This could be been a great opportunity to show all kinds of hands. You could have shared a rainbow to show support to queer knitters or just brighten our worlds. As a queer black knitter I am disappointed in you.

      It’s only the beginning of June. KnitPicks, you still have time to change the photo. This is your chance to take a stand.

      Thank you for pointing out both of those things! I am embarrassed to admit I had not thought about it. As the mother of a trans daughter, June is a special month. A rainbow would have been appropriate. In the future, if a calendar includes a person having a diverse group of knitters would make sense. I do appreciate Knit Picks making these for us and these ideas are a wonderful way to make them even better.

    Beautiful! This is a great way to start the month.

  7. Marcia / June 2, 2020

    HI- I’m new to Knit Pick and love this freebie! Is there anyway to get links to the yarns pictured? There are a few that I want to get additional information on
