It's finished!!  
Apparently my spindles are supposed to be useful as well as decorative.

1/3 yak, 1/3 bombyx silk, 1/3 merino, 66 wpi (74 wpi before washing), 426 yards, 1 oz. Greensleeves Damsel Monique spindle, Masur Birch, 1 oz.

I love the way freshly spun yarn is bundled. This looks lovely...

Thank you. I was trying to be a bit artistic and get a nice shot of this skein & spindle. 1 ounce down, 3.5 ounces to go. It's going to take me the bulk of the year to get all this yarn done, mostly becuase I don't enjoy drop spinning nearly as much as wheel spinning.

Yep the shot itself is very cool. I especially like the shadow made by the spindle.

Can't believe that's just one ounce, looks like a lot more! It's too bad it's such tedious work, but hey the results are gorgeous.
