H-A-P-P-Y- with capitals HAPPY I am! I have never worked on one project for so long. Not because I'm a slow crocheter, but just because this project 'hibernated' to much... This (sorry in Dutch) is how I started. Little 3 row granny squares joint as I worked. But it wasn't to my likings... Until I figured I could crochet white edges around each square to brighten things up... Now that the project was frogged anyway I could put back the squares as I liked... so in stead of rows of colors I just randomly joined the squares. Also I threw in squares with my fave color purple. Well... and working on a project that is to your liking goes a whole lot faster. So last week my plaid was finally - after nearly a year - finished! Just in time for spring/summer...  Smiley

Hope you like it!

I love what you have done. The white gives it a calming effect.

Mini squares, monster project.  I too love the white background, it makes a lovely contrast to the colours.  Great job.
