Penguin Sweaters

I was on Cute Overload this morning, showing TL some photos of dog costumes. He hadn't seen the site before (not surprisingly). While there, I saw this photo of a penguin wearing a little sweater. At first, I thought "How cute! How weird is that?" "Why would anyone do that?"

When I clicked over to The Yarn Kitchen blog, to look at the pattern, I realized it's a charitable work. These poor little penguins have been effected by the oil spill in New Zealand; and the sweaters are to help them stay warm and prevent them from eating oil, too. You can read all about it on the blog post.

According to Cute Overload, they have enough sweaters for now. I went back and read the CL article after seeing the Yarn Kitchen post. The image above is from the Cute Ovcrload site
