Norway Knitted "La Vie En Rose" Afghan

While my mother, who lives in Norway, was visiting earlier this year she saw the
"La Vie En Rose" afghan and so very much wanted to make one.
However, there was a problem, she is a knitter not a crocheter.
(Yes, can you believe it's true?)

So she took the chart from the pattern and the Stylecraft Special DK yarn that I had leftover from 
the crocheted project and began making little knit squares:
 And this is the result.
Pretty, huh?
I love it and can't wait to see what the finished afghan will be like.
She intends on sewing the squares together.

Mor is diligently working on the knit squares, back in Norway, and I hope to receive
photos of the finished afghan one day.

This is what the crocheted squares look like:

The following photos show how the crocheted version looks upon completion:
