Half Square Triangles

I am really excited about a new project I've been working on. I'm quite enamored of half square triangle quilts, but I wanted something squishy and knit instead. SO. I pulled out some yarn and made some swatches, and finally came up with a construction method I was happy with. I've picked out some lovely colors for the real blanket, and I'm getting started!

When they're halfway done, they look a little like bunting. Especially when I do them two at a time! I was too lazy to get the other two colors out, so I did another two before finishing them all up, and this is what they look like when done.

Please excuse the strings, I'm too excited about the knitting part to have sewn in any ends yet. I haven't decided exactly what pattern to put them in yet, but I kinda like these little diamonds.

Or perhaps I can go with a pretty little chevron styling? I just noticed that the leftmost white square is reversed, oops!

So far I have 10 to play around with. I'm making a baby blanket size, so I'll need a total of 144. Looks like I I have some work ahead of me!
