Designing yarn

IMG_0087One of the big advantages of spinning your own yarn is you can make it how you want it. Sometimes it’s hard to know though. What would you do with this?

I really like the combination of colours, and it seems to me there are several options. These are two 50g batts so I could divide the fibre into sections and spin it to make it stripy. Not sure. Or I could spin one batt and then the other, doing the colours in three big sections. Or I could combine them into one big skein of yarn with all the grey together, then the white and then the yellow. What would you do? And what project is this perfect for?
