This little knit celebrates Grog the Raven. A bird who, after 21 years of service to the crown, left his post and nipped off down the pub. Thus bringing shame upon the feathered fellows of the Tower in 1981. Just goes to show that you can clip a true Londoner’s wings and tempt them to stay with regular meals of blood-soaked biscuits but when a Londoner wants a pint, they want a pint. Hic.

All change: In green with hints of tropical orange Grog has been known to sail the seven seas with many a scurvy crew as a parrot. Be sure to pack at least eight pieces of eight and some limes for the scurvy before you send him seawards.
