My first Mason Dixon Mitered Square, Done

Uh oh, I think I have mitered square syndrome. Does it only get worse as time goes by? 'Cause after doing only one, I'm hooked. I see why so many people love 'em. After doing my four bibs I wanted something different. I have been thinking about doing a mitered square since I bought the book, now I'm so glad I did. I can see this being a great take along project, not like my log cabin blanket (which I also love, by the way). Having 2 afghans going at once is a miracle for me, I said I'd never do anymore afghans--this book made me change my mind. All I can say is: this is one of the best knitting books around.

in your photo, I love the contrast of the bright Kaffe Fassett colors with the serene pastels of the quilt underneath...
Danielle, you square is beautiful.
I've made a log cabin and the Curve of Pursuit, but when I did a mitered square, I had a heck of a time. I just could NOT get into the rhythm of the center decreases.

Have you any hints for me? I have a BUNCH of yarn that is wanting to turn into squares and I need help.

Jillie, I wish I had some hints for you. One thing is: I find myself counting the stitches to the decreases. I also photocopied the pattern from the book and glued it to note cards, so I could easily take the pattern with me and also glance at it to remind myself what row I'm on. I just had a thought--you could always put a stitch marker in right before the first decrease. It might help to remind you. Hope that helps, if not just find me on my blog and we can talk more about it.
