My entire life up until now has been preparation for this

One of my friends pointed out the subject of today's post.  I thought I'd be updating you on the crap I've been making, or my latest kerfuffle one of the local weirdos, but we have more important things to talk about today.

Penguins. New Zealand. Knitting. BOOM! I'm ON IT.

I've heard of this before--the sweaters keep them from swallowing the oil when they try to preen their feathers. And seriously, is anything more adorable?

Me and Murray on the NZ shore....stay out of the water!


  1. I saw that too and may be jumping on the bandwagon! My friend suggested that we need more pictures of penguins in jumpers. :)

  2. I saw that too- so adorable! Although I'm not sure I can convince myself that a penguin actually NEEDS a hand knit sweater enough for me to donate my valuable winter-knitting time to...

  3. I had heard about this. Those poor little dears.
    I hadn't seen that link with the penguin in the faux tux sweater though. It didn't occur to me that you could be so creative with a penguin sweater. Maybe there needs to be a sweater with penguin fair isle on it.
