Pretty green market bag

The Provence Summer string bag. I started this 2 days ago and hope to finish it today. The pattern can be found here. This bag is so pretty. I want to use it as my every day shopping bag. The yarn I'm using is pretty old and from my stash. Years and years ago I worked in a knit/craft store in NY and we sold some very nice yarns for the times. This is some that I have stashed away for many years. It's Phildar coton d'egypte 4 1/2. 100% cotton. I have used this for some tops and other items in the past. It's very soft and silky and doesn't pill. Hopefully my bag will last a long time. I used the 4 balls of green for the body and would like to make 2 more rows in the pattern but I don't think there will be enough green for the treble row. That means if I want to add more rows I'll have to use the natural color for a couple of pattern rows and then use the rest of the green for the handle. Yes I think that will work..!!
Today is Friday and we usually go to Whole Foods to shop and eat some of their delicious food from the salad bar. This Whole Foods has a large cold and a hot food bar and of course I have to get a Reed's Ginger Brew. Yummm.
