Penguin Sweaters?

Many of you have jumped on the penguin wool wagon and knit sweaters for these sweet little guys and gals.  From what we have read (on line), penguins don't seem to need or want sweaters.  And, while it's a super cute idea, you might want to do your good deed in another way.

Below are some sites with info about penguins sweaters.  If you really want to help (a charity or make the world a better place), we suggest you always donate direct or better yet, volunteer "hands on" so you know when, why and where your donations are going.

Direct donation to penguins; http://penguinfoundation.org.au/
For info on penguin sweaters;
http://blog.bird-rescue.org/index.php/2011/10/sweaters-on-penguins/ or http://www.snopes.com/critters/crusader/penguins.asp

Jennifer Knits is a big fan of penguins, but we like to use our resources and time to help humans, especially young ones.  We have been a long time supporter of http://rootsandshoots.org/.
This is an amazing organization that teens can get involved with at school.  We are currently raising money for the Roots & Shoots Science club of Bellflower High School.  Special thanks to teacher Melissa Wenger for making school the best part of her students day :-)

January's Sweater of the Month

What's the JK Club?  For $8.95 per month your receive one of Jennifer's fabulous patterns email to you every month PLUS you'll get 10% off one purchase every month.  What's the catch?  NOTHING!  You just need to commit to 12 months and give us your email address.   And, unlike the zillion of other monthly clubs out there that continue unless you give written notice, the JK Club will automatically expire in 12 months :-) 


Here's January's hot little number.  Inspired by a Oscar De La Renta.

Works up beautifully in any cashmere, merino or silk blend. Details given on pattern.

Gorgeous, right?
You'll want the JK Club for sure!!!
