I belong to an organization called “Best Friends”. www.bestfriends.org . They are currently looking to have some sweaters knitted/sewed/crocheted for their parrots! They have some parrots that pluck their feathers and they have found that these sweaters make a great distraction to the parrots!
You can read more about it at this link!
I know it’s christmas time and many of us are busy with our christmas knitting, but I know that they would be happy to get any sweaters even if they came after christmas!
There is a pattern (knit for penguins) that is listed in the comments (at the bottom of the page). I’m not sure of all the specifics yet, but if I find out anything else I will post.
Just thought I’d spread the word! I know how wonderful knitters/crocheter’s/sew’rs are!
