"The gift of a knitted bear, which has been carefully and lovingly made, will be treasured far more ... and chances are, it will still have a loving home long after more commercial toys have been sent to the charity shops." ~ Sandra Polley



I am a 28-year-old elementary school teacher, and I’m currently on maternity leave with my beautiful 6-month old daughter. During her naptimes, I knit (when I probably should be doing laundry or catching up on sleep!). I just started my Etsy shop, called Only One. I named it Only One because each item is the “only one” of its kind! Also, when I was young, my parents called naptime an "only one", and each of my toys would be perfect for little kids to keep them company during their naps. 





I love to knit, and I especially love creating unique toys and collectibles that make me smile. For years I mostly knit teddy bears, altering patterns by shrinking the heads, lengthening the arms, etc. Now I design and knit many different toys, usually with bright colors and distinct personalities. Several of my toys have cute poems included too.



Usually, I knit in my family room because that is where I’m most comfortable, but that can get a bit messy. Recently, my husband suggested that I take some time to organize my supplies, so we found a 4-drawer cart that fits next to my sofa. Now all of the main supplies (needles, felt, thread, etc.) are conveniently located, organized, and hidden away.



I’m always adding to my Etsy shop, so I hope you’ll visit often!



Cheers,

Bonnie King
