i updated my facebook status on sunday morning:
a friend then issued a challenge in the comments:
so i checked out my stash, found some leftovers, and cast on!
i knit the bottom of the can first, then instead of knitting each side panel individually and later seaming them together, i picked up stitches around the edge of the bottom and knit upwards in the round. or maybe i did something a little wrong, because i actually ended up purling the whole thing. when i got to the top, i knit a couple rows with the yellow, then cast off three sides – finishing off with the ‘lid’.
it was just a silly project in honor of the annual SPAM bbq party my friends, bertine and zach, host. it only took a couple afternoons, though it also had its frustrating moments. i know what i would do differently if i were to knit this again.
it definitely made me appreciate the ease of the second sock i’m trying to finish knitting, though.
