After a while though, they multiply. Especially when one has not thought out a long term plan for these guys. So, I made a bunch over the course of the summer and now I have a big container full of different colored granny squares. I've started to stitch some together for other small projects but mostly, I just have a large amount of granny squares. What would a group of granny squares be called in the wild? A rocker? A spectacle? Other terms associated with grannies? Maybe a moth ball of granny squares?
I've been sitting on this granny square post for a while. Mostly because granny squares are not that exciting to other people, I realize. They aren't that different from other things that multiply quickly though. My weight after having 3 kids is similar. In addition to crocheting granny squares, I also enjoy sitting and doing things like eating and partaking in alcohol sometimes, unfortunately that results in another form of multiplication - mostly of my lower half. It's not nearly as pretty as a box of colorful granny squares, I'm afraid.
Negative thoughts multiply too. Think one critical thing about yourself and then try to stop at just that one. It's impossible. You start down that road and it's one thing after another. Every now and then my insecure 18 year old self starts its self-torture of negative (and vain) thoughts and it's downhill from there. She needs a good punch in the throat sometimes.
The hours in a work day leading up to a heavily anticipated vacation seem to multiply. I don't think science has been able to prove this theory but I'm pretty sure it exists. I wish I had an awesome vacation planned so I could test out this theory.
Some other things that multiply?
- Time spent on Facebook and Pinterest in one evening
- An itch that you scratch and then suddenly you have twelve other itches
- Fruit flies (currently the bane of my existence)
- The amount of times a room full of boys can say 'dude'
- My love of Project Runway! I love it more every season. The creative process always fascinates me.
- My calculator at work. Good thing too because my brain has become too dependent on it over the years.
So there's a post about granny squares for the masses (or at least for the few family and friends who read my blog). I hope my readership multiplies (wink, wink). Thanks for hanging in there and tolerating my terrible pun.
