Mitered Square Knitting

I've read the excited and energetic posts on Mason Dixon Knitting about mitered squares, but I didn't understand the fascination until I knit my first one today. OMGosh! It flies off the needles because there's a double decrease every other row. I get it now!

This pattern is in Jan Eaton's 200 Knitted Blocks, but I just grabbed three colors that seemed like they'd work well together and waded in.

The single unit worked in worsted weight is about 4". I'm going to make four and sew them together to make a trivet. I took the picture into PhotoShop and rotated and pasted the quarter-units to see how it'll look.

That was fun too. I could get lost in these things, oh the possibilities!
