I heard about this a long time ago, and I searched for a pattern, but couldn't find one. Thanks for the link. I can't wait to get started!

Oh. My. God. And snopes.com says it's for real!!!

(My husband and I have a thing about penguins. He'll kill me if I keep telling people that, though.)

ETA: According to http://www.tct.org.au/jumper.htm the project is finished...

I think I saw a show about these penguins on the discovery channel. They didn't mention the sweaters though. :thinking:

I've seen that. When it first hit the news EVERYONE I knew told me about it. I even had a tiny magazine clipping taped to my wall! I kept saying, "but I don't know HOW to knit!"
I have a thing for penguins. Actually, "thing" is way too mild of a word. :o hehehe

but why do they need sweaters? aren't they cold weather animals? I'm confused

To my understanding, when there are oil spills, the sweaters keep them from basically eating the oil off of their feathers.
