Autumn Spindle Spun

Here's the autumn colored handspun finished up - there are 762 yards of fingering weight yarn. I spun and plyed it on my Golding drop spindle. Now the hard part - figuring out what to weave/knit with it. That's the spindle sitting with the mini-skeins - hand carved whorl with handtooled sterling inlay around the edge of the whorl - by far the best balanced, longest spinning spindle I have (and I have lots of exceptional ones) and it holds more by far than any other spindle I currently have.
