FO: Craving Cables Bag

This FO was a long time comin'.
Like, one year and four months. Yeah. Sixteen months of being on the needles.
Then, it sat in waiting to be revealed for another month.

Shame on me.

FO: Craving Cables Bag

Look how pretty!

Pattern: Ganiggle's Celtic Memories
Yarn: KnitPicks Wool of the Andes in Tidepool Heather, 1.5 skeins
Needles: KnitPicks Circular, Size 2
Time: Sixteen effin' months (a few rows here, a few rows there; you know how it goes)
Recipient: Not sure. I will save it for now, but maybe it will be a gift at some point.
Thoughts/mods/notes: I didn't make any mods, and the pattern is really straightforward. There was so much time in between sessions of knitting on this that I never really memorized the cabled section (but the lace portions on either side were easy to remember). I love this, and I'm proud to finish it, as the cabling is really gorgeous in the heathered yarn. I like the three buttons I had in my stash, and how they match the yarn so perfectly. I did my first i-cord for the strap (now I've even done applied i-cord on Pauline!).

The end. Whew. Glad to have this one complete.
