Cutest Thing Ever: Penguins in Sweaters

It has been waaayyy too long since I've done a Cutest Thing Ever post. The minute I saw this story, I had to share it with you. Earlier this month, an oil spill in New Zealand impacted the nation's blue penguins. In order to keep the penguins from preening their oil soaked feathers, and to keep them warm before and after rescue workers clean them up, a knitting shop in New Zealand called for knitters to make sweaters for these poor penguins...

Seriously, does it get any cuter than this?!? This knitting shop was overwhelmed with penguin sweaters! They are now stockpiling them for any future need. This is an absolutely heartwarming story. Click HERE to read it and to see more pictures of penguins in sweaters. You'll be glad you did :) Have a great weekend!

Aww! This makes me wish I knew how to knit just to be able to send them a few more penguin sweaters.

Makes me want to learn to knit! How fun would it be to see your creation worn by a penguin?! And to know you were helping them survive a disaster to boot! Thanks for posting about this ;-)
