hand knit sweaters for penguins!

how badly do i wish i had a photo of this!

apparently do-gooder knitters make sweaters for rescued penguins in australia. i think it's great that knitters knit hats for cancer patients or afghans for afghans and contribute to all kinds of great causes, but oh my god knitting a sweater for a penguin is just too adorable.

maybe it's a good thing there aren't any pictures -- i feel woozy just thinking about the pure adorableness.

here's a million dollar idea that i'll give away for free: a giant oil tanker cozy that might keep the oil from spilling out onto the penguins?
