Almost finished-cable knit purse

I have to line this and put a handle on it, but all of the knitting is done.

I used two stands knit together of Plymouth Encore. It's a simple 10 stitch cable and was inspired by a purse I saw for sale.

Mine is deeper, but the width should be the same. I thought it would be more convenient. I also added an i-cord border to the top of the purse. I did a mattress stitch for the sides, but now wish that I had done a selvage stitch on either side of the purse so I could have made sewing the sides up less obvious. I also will use a chunky wool as the Encore is too stretchy. I'll also use smaller needles. I used size 13. I think a tighter knit would look better.

If I have the time, I'll try to write up a pattern for this one.
