I'm only resurfacing from the craziness that is NaNoWriMo (36K as of yesterday!) to share this:


A yarn store on New Zealand sent out a call for help from knitters all over the world - to knit sweaters for the penguins who were affected by the oil spill. The sweaters serve a dual purpose - to keep the penguins warm until they're well enough to be cleaned, and to prevent them from ingesting the oil on their feathers. The response was overwhelming!

How cute!

My cousin in Canada years ago knit my parrot one of those but she didn't give him openings for his wings and it was a turtleneck to boot! LOL

OMG, these are *adorable*. And I can just picture knitters all over the world joining forces to make little sweaters.

"Hi hon, whatcha working on?"

"A sweater."

"Kind of small, isn't it?"

"It's for a penguin. Several, actually."

This is a conversation I want to hear!! :-)
