FO: Cabled Hobo Bag
Good Morning everyone! This is my 1st post here...I'm happy to be a part of this awesome forum. Actually, I taught myself how to knit from Knittinghelp.com only a few months ago. Just thought I would share my first completed knitting project. It's a Cabled Hobo Bag. Since it was intended to be just a way for me to practice cables, I used a worsted weight yarn from my stash which is about 15 yrs old, and it isn't lined. A link to the pattern and the image can be found on my blog here. I have not quite figured out how to post pictures yet. Sorry 'bout that. Thanks in advance for looking

It is gorgeous and the color is beautiful!
I want to make that for my mother next month and wonder how long it would take. Would you mind sharing how long it took you VictoriaRose?

Love the bag, and your other FOs as well. I have to make the flip-flop socks!

Hi KT120,
I have 5 VERY active children ranging in age from 15 to 6(co-ed twins). IF I would have been allowed to work on it as long as I wished, when I wanted, I would have been done in about 10 days. BUT, the harsh reality is...2 months !!! My oldest daughter asked me if I could make her one, except she needs it book-bag size for school (she wants RH w/w Aran Fleck). I figure if I start now, she might get it for Christmas
