In New Zealand, there was an oil spill around October 11th. As we know, oil spills are dangerous for the environment as well as the species. In particular, there was hundreds of penguins effected by the oil spill. Skeinz called out for knitters to make little sweaters for the penguins!
The sweaters would prevent the penguins from cleaning their feathers and swallowing the oil which is toxic. Skeinz was bombarded with a massive outpouring of sweaters. How can anyone resist after seeing a penguin in a sweater?
