Hooray, I found the time to finish it and to get Rob to take some photos as well!
I like it! By a small accident, the handle is the exact right length, and the colour is gorgeous. It is a really useable size too!
The lining was a bit of a pain to do as the top is so much narrower than the bottom. Let's just say it wouldn't win any neatness competitions and let's hope I never need to find anything small in it in a hurry.
The eskimo wool is really heavy, which enables the bag to stand up on its own.
I made a couple of mods
A deeper garter st edge at the top to enable me to use the big button, and I only knitted one handle instead of two.
Pattern: Drops Cable Bag (free download)

We had a great walk this afternoon, and I took some pictures, I'll post them tomorrow if I can. We walked through some beautiful countryside. Funny how something can be on your doorstep and you don't even know it's there!
Look at that!! No blogging from me for a few days and then 5 in one day!!!!
