The Oldest Man In Australia Spends His Time Knitting Sweaters For Penguins

He's 109 and feelin' fine.

Alfred Date is Australia's oldest man at 109 years old and he loves to knit.

The call for jumpers went out almost a year ago after an oil spill left penguins cold and distressed.

The foundation no longer needs jumpers after the massive response, but Date no doubt still knows he made an impact.

Alfred still knits, but sticks to more routine things like clothing for humans.

Check out Alfred's whole story here.
