A few months ago I ordered some fiber from the Spunky Eclectic Almost Solid Series.  I had 11 different colorways in Merino for a project, but I knew I would have more than enough for some extra projects.  As I was spinning I held back a half an ounce of each color to make a scrappy yarn.

I spun the two plies differently to maximize the color variations.  I split all the colors into 8 pieces and then drafted them.  I then took the fiber for the first ply and broke all but the first and last piece in half again.  I spun the first ply A-B-C-B-A and the second ply A-B-C-A-B-C.  When they were plied they turned into this great sock weight fiber.
