Oh dear...

...as if I didn't have enough yarn already.

I just couldn't resist.

I actually went in to buy a couple more balls of the green yarn but they are currently out of stock - then this caught my eye...
 ...so a ball or SIX came home with me. Six balls makes a nice size throw and I didn't want to be hanging around for more stock to arrive if this colourway also proved to be very popular.

The lavender throw is completed...
...and the way the variegation worked-up is so pretty. I was also able to join the balls in, keeping the colours following correctly by just checking each of the balls as I needed them - some I used from the middle & some from the outside...but it worked.

Here is the throw on the chair by my PC, sorry the light isn't very good at this time of day (the Sun is on the other side of the house)...
...but I think you can see how the colour shading has worked. With the yarn being intended for babies, it is lovely and soft and great for snuggling under.

I hope they get more of the green is soon. In the meantime I think I've got plenty to keep me busy............................................................

That throw is beautiful! I wish I could do something other than cut and stick..but both sewing and crocheting elude me! Great job.
