It's finished!

Finally I can report an FO! Oh, I am so excited!
With about 20 feet of yarn remaining, I finished the sage cable handled tote bag this weekend. I did remember to take a picture prior to felting, which is unlike me since I usually get too excited and run to the washing machine as soon as the yarn needle finishes it's weaving job.
Before:
After:
In the words of Hubster, "Wow, that came out really nice. It was just a big blob before." Thanks honey, that was the plan.


I took lots of notes, so yes, there will be a pattern coming soon! And I'm on a kick to get more of my stuff "faved" over in Ravelry. So if you like it, let me know!

Just lovely! Well done. Love the cabled handles. How do you do them so they don't twist?

Thanks everyone!
To answer a few questions, the yarn is Patons Wool. Bargain wool (especially with coupons) that felts wonderfully!
And the handles are a continuation of the cable pattern. The secret is to felt lightly and check VERY often!
