march of the sweaters


i always knew knitting was good for my health. little did i know it was also good for penguins. a group of ladies in new south wales is knitting teeny sweaters for the tiniest of penguins. the so-called "fairy" penguins are so wee, they can get stuck in oil spills. snug wool sweathers keep them warm and prevent them from ingesting the toxic oil. really.

I wonder when they'll have enough sweaters... The Snopes article on this was last updated in 2001.
