Your Knitting Can Save Lives In The Most Unexpected Ways.
The Penguin Foundation is calling on all knitters around the world to help the penguins in rehab. They are constantly getting caught in the oil spills and need tiny sweaters for the penguins as soon as possible. The sweaters prevent the penguins from preening themselves and ingesting the toxic oil. The pattern and address information is here.
Here are some of the sweaters the Penguin Foundation has received so far.

Here’s a video from NBC news reporting the penguin sweater drive back in 2011. They are always getting caught in oil, so they always need more sweaters. Any extra will be used for educational purposes and fundraising.
