Ellie’s right. She says “a knitting pattern for a penguin jumper makes a rubbish Christmas present.” And I have to agree. Making sweaters to keep penguins warm after an oil spill and calling it a good deed seems to be misdirecting people’s charitable energy. Why not get us up in arms about the oil spill in the first place? And if the penguins need warmth after an oil spill, insist the perpetrator’s spend the time and energy to protect them. Don’t waste knitter’s good will. Save the adorable penguin vests for your stuffed dolls.
Ok, back to work now…
[UPDATE] John asked if this is a hoax… Snopes says it’s true!
