Merino Lilacs spun

I've spun about 145 gms of the Merino roving in lilacs and puples.
I decided to spin it in a color sequence - approximately the same amount spun of each color in sequence and then I chain-plied it to keep the sequences. There is about 313 yards wound off and now soaking in water to set the twist and remove any loose dye.
There was only a little bleeding on the first rinse and none so far in the second.
I'm hoping the sampling the hank and letting it hang-dry will even out some of the slobber parts.
Here it is on the swift before soaking:

Looking forward to test-knitting it when it is dry and wound.
