purling for penguins













To the knitters out there, a worthy (and adorable) project:
The oil spill in New Zealand has soaked parts of the native blue penguin population, and rescuers are in need of little sweaters to protect the bird's feathers and prevent them from ingesting the toxic oil. Exact instructions for the size of sweater, as well as where to send them can be found here and here.
