Ello's adventure

Ello is finished, and he has quite an adventure during his short life. You can see more adventures of Ello's siblings on the "adventures of Elijah" group on The pattern is from Ysolda.

(Sorry, I have no energy left for making links. Maybe later.)

Once upon a time, there was a little elephant made of yarn, and his name was Ello. He was born in a cubby in yarn shop, but he did not have a family.

Upon emerging from the cubby, he went for an exciting ride in a yarn swift . . .

. . . and he landed on the couch, where he received an excellent knitting lesson from a knitting fairy. He asked, but this fairy would not be his family. She already had a fairy family of her own!

He was quite sad and lonely, so he snuggled into a knitting bag and took a nap.

When he awoke, he was no longer in the knitting shop, but in a cozy cabin! He must have been carried home with a knitter! Maybe he would find his family here?

Checking out his new surroundings, he fell out of the knitting bag . . .

. . . and was eaten by a terrible monster!

The monster carried him all around the cabin, and Ello was very scared.

Then, the monster dropped him into the arms of a cute, friendly baby girl! Now he would certainly be safe from danger. Was she his family?

But wait, she is going to eat him too! Oh, the burdens of being so irresistible. He must get away!

Ello jumped to the floor, still in one piece. He met an entire pride of elephants, roaming the savannah of the nursery together. He had found his family at last! The end.
