Knitters Unite!

This is so cool:
"Skeinz, a yarn store in New Zealand is calling on knitters worldwide to make sweaters for penguins affected by the2011 New Zealand Oil Spill. The sweaters prevent oil-soaked birds from preening (and poisoning) themselves, and keep them warm before and after they are cleaned by cleanup workers. The Tasmanian Conservation Trust made a similar request in 2001, but instead of the 100 sweaters they asked for,they received 15,000." 

 Via Squiddy and heaps of others - knitters worldwide unite for NZ!  Whoop!
