I finished the Braided Mischief Scarf for Bruce. It's really lovely and I wet blocked it yesterday. It is now taking forever to dry.
I used six skeins of Knitpicks Gloss DK, held double. Final measurements are 76 inches by six inches. The yarn is really lovely to knit with. It felt nice, it looks gorgeous, and amazingly enough the color of the yarn in my photo is pretty true to life. I'll let you know how it wears.
This scarf FLEW off the needles once I finally got the chance to sit down and knit on it. It took about three hours to finish a double skein, so in total, around nine hours of knitting.
My new project is September Circle (appropriately enough) in the Schoppel-Wolle Crazy Zauberball. I love this yarn, y'all. It's amazing. I will post a full review of it when I'm done. But I'll say, so far the color changes are as AWESOME as Noro and the yarn feels a whole heck of a lot nicer on the fingers.

And, finally, the giveaway. I have three knitting books here that I know I'm never going to use, and while they are pretty and fun to look at, it simply is not going to happen. So in the interest of paring down, I am giving them away.
Please leave me a comment with your choice of books (or all three, if you're so inclined) on this post by midnight (NYC time) Friday, September 24th. I'll choose a winner and let you all know on Saturday.
