Without revealing my sources, the funniest moment came today when I was told that I have a long torso “just like a giraffe.”

Uhhhh…  I don’t think that’s how giraffes work.

But, yeah, I do have a long torso.  And so does Bennett.

We’re keeping our eye on him, carefully observing all the subtleties of his marvelous design.

By the way, my great grandmother made that blanket.  She’s the one who originally taught me how to crochet!

    I noticed the blanket right away when you posted the other picture on FB. 🙂 I remember her teaching you how to crochet. She had such patience.

    You are indeed correct. Actually the giraffe torso is rather short by comparison, I believe. But, you have a long, beautiful neck as well, though I wouldn’t compare it to a GIRAFFE!

    Giraffes should be so lucky to be as beautiful as you! He looks marvelous on that blanket and Great Grandmother is tickled I’m sure and so proud!

    Yes, Great Grandmother is tickled and proud. That is her postage stamp pattern – just slightly larger than the actual postage stamp one which I cannot part with yet. I could never master that stitch. The other brown/green combo I did. Typically I do baby blankets, but when I read the colors in his nursery and did not seem to find time to do a blanket, I decided to part with one of more manly colors for when he is older. Mother did Sandy’s boys the larger postage stamp ones for car seats and lap robes in the car–my idea for sharing the gray/blue ones. But I love it as a place for Bennett to show his torso.

    He IS really long in the torso. Hmmm. I’m thinkin’ he’ll still be on the shorter side.
