Year of the Giraffe






This year I became acutely aware that my niece is approaching an age group that goes completely unserviced in regards to animal costuming. If Amazon Search is any indicator, children between the ages of 8 and 14 are expected to go virtually suit-less year-round, or worse, don something awkward and immodest - Sexy Cat, Sexy Bee, Sexy Lobster, etc. Because of this, I have chosen to furnish her with one of the more elaborate costumes for her Suit the Snoot program this year: The Giraffe.

It is my sincere hope that when it comes time for me to hand-knit these things to continue The Program through that 8-14 drought, I will have already purchased for her those animal suits which are too great a challenge for a novice seamster such as myself.

A very successful suiting of the snoot this year. Well done. Can't wait to see your home-made lobster claws next year.

Once she turns 8 you can always go with a ghost and cut two eye holes in a white sheet:)...for six years.
