Looks great! Congrats on finishing your first cable project in the round!
So many people seem to be intimidated by cables, but there is really no need to be! It's one of those things that looks difficult and complicated but is really very simple .... all you're doing is knitting your stitches out of order, so if you know how to knit and purl then you will have no trouble with cables.
If it's not a design element that you're interested in using then that's fine, but don't avoid cables just because of intimidation! It's only knitting ... what's the worst thing that could happen?? Either you fail miserably (which seems pretty unlikely to me if you've mastered the basic knit and purl) and end up frogging, or you learn a new technique that you love!
