This thread inspired me to make a cable purse for a friend for christmas
however i had never knit cables before also don't have a cable needle
so here is my first attempt....i used a reg size needle to hold the stitches off and other then that being a bit awkward i found cables surprisingly easy!!
I hate sewing in the lining...but this is hand sewn and only the second time i've lined a purse ...i got tired of the cables with a large needle so i just straight knit the backside of the purse
also i have one line through the cables that is backwards but i can say i meant to do that
Over all i think a great learning experience and hopefully my friend likes it ( haven't seen her yet to give her present )
