Mostly because I've been wishy-washy and not of the finishing sort of variety of knitter. But I have an FO! So yay for me!

The cable pattern:
The swirly bottom:
The completed bag:
I would highly recommend this as a first cable project. In fact if anyone wants the booklet and wants to swap something else for it, let me know. It uses a variety of cable techniques and in the 1824 wool, the cables are gorgeous. I now have the confidence to make the Rogue cardigan. I just have to pick out the perfect yarn.
