Penguin Sweaters

October 20, 2011 § Leave a comment

This might literally be the most adorable thing I’ve seen all year.

Apparently, in the wake of the 2011 Tauranga Oil Spill in New Zealand, many penguins are ingesting the oil that is covering their bodies and therefore poisoning themselves. A local yarn store, Skeinz, has put out a call to action for knitters to send in knitted penguin-sized sweaters to protect the birds and keep them warm until they can have the oil cleaned off of them. (Actually, they have now received as many as they can use, so, don’t start knitting yet….)

Some ridiculously cute photos:

Kinda reminds me of the Birdbot of Icecatraz episode of Futurama….
