Ollie The Lion

Ollie, Lion, Wrath

Ollie The Lion – Wrath:

Ollie is a peaceful lion and very likable, well most of the time anyway. He normally likes to make a cup of tea, curled up in his chair and knit while listening to his favourite music. But if he finds a mistake in his work, you wouldn’t like to be anywhere near him. A single drop stitch is enough to transform him to a wild beast.

– Ollie, what did you do! Look at all that mess! It was nothing but a little mistake, you can’t even tell where it is. Come on, pull yourself together and I will make you a cup of tea while you clean up and then we will fix your knitting.
