second Babette blanket ready

My second Babette blanket is ready and I am very pleased with it.
It is crochet of wool yarn , Senjagarn made by Gjesdal AS, Norway. I have used hook 3.5mm.
A extra section is added to make the blanket rectangle, the original pattern is a square.
I started long ago and then I moved to an other house.
 Now I am on holiday in Norway and took everything with me to finish it.
The size is 176x128 cm. but I know it will stretch while using it, at least 10cm on each side. The first Babette I made did that too. It is not pressed, I don't like that. It looks so flat and dead after pressing.

I have much yarn left and start today with a ripple blanket :-)
