Soryu in progress

You'll have to open these to get a sense of the colors coming together.
I'm working to make it very thin and put a lot of twist into it, because I've never been very happy with my own plying attempts. I'm pulling tiny amounts of 2-4 of the rovings and spinning them together so I can get some nice striation. I'm making sure there's continuity between each of the sections - one or more color has to "bridge" to the next selection of colors. It's supposedly random, though we all know nothing humans do is, so I'll be sort of interested to see how it comes out when plied.
Hope everyone had a nice Easter!
