Long crafty weekend

On my 3-day birthday weekend I was amazed how much I got done. I got about 9" of my Aramis top:

And on impulse I started a new project. I was helping my BFF Alison, the novice sock knitter, on her second ever sock and I felt compelled to be knitting a simple sock. I bought this yarn from ShelbyB at a fiber festival a few weeks ago. She has all kinds of colorways related to the Harry Potter series. I happened to fall in love with the namesake one because of its combination of many colors. And Shelby was able to name why she included each. Here is what happened with the cuff so far, knit in stockinette stitch. So neat!

I also just finished a rad yoga bag with a pocket.
