Ladies and Gentlemen... I have a Squid! - Update to Mystery Bag KAL

Funny looking isn't it? 

This is what my Mystery bag looked like after finishing Clue #2 and doing the first section of Clue #3, which I finished on Wednesday.  Now for the life of me, I couldn't figure out how this was going to turn into a bag.  Thanks to the group's spoiler thread I now know how it all comes together, but I think I'll let you all sweat it out for a bit and and only fill you in when I've finished the bag (probably this weekend). 

I have one other piece of the braided cable which will be 40+ inches long; I have only done about 24 of it though, so I have a long way to go.  I have very recently reached my mental limit for cabling so instead I'm focusing on the main portion of the bag. 

I think I am about 75% of the way done with this KAL and it's been really cool seeing everyone's color choices for their bags and seeing people's progress through the weeks.  I'm kind of sad that it will all be over soon... Luckily Talithakuomi has assured us that Appalachian Yarns will be holding more KALs in the future with a mystery vest up next and perhaps a shawl this summer.  I can't wait!

I should be able to share the final product in the next few day (so long as I stop being so lazy about knitting!).
