Yes, our socks are 100% seamless. How do we do it! Magic! No, not magjc…just kidding. Our socks are knit the same way a caterpillar spins its cocoon. We start at the toe and spin up towards the ankle. It’s that simply. Very cool, but simple.
Since our blog is so new and I didn’t have a chance to share our experience at AOTA last April, I wanted to do so now. AOTA stands for American Occupational Therapy Association. They have a conference every year and we attended this year. It was very cool. I got to meet and mingle with all the wonderful OT’s. (I was the life of the party) Werecieved some great feedback too. They particularly liked the seamless toe and lack of a heel. The seamless toe doesn’t bother kids with sensory issues and a sock without a heel is easy for any child to slip on. I just love hearing about how SmartKnitKIDS help. It makes me proud to be their front bug.
Above is me in our AOTA booth. I was looking particularly handsome that day. It really was great having the chance to talk to everyone and be at AOTA.
If you’re an OT and would like information about SmartKnitKIDS for your patients, please contact me! I’ll be happy to send a professional resource kit out to you. Please visit us at http://www.smartknitkids.com/professional_resources.html to request a kit today!
For some children sensations such as touch, smell, and sound can be overwhelming and upsetting. A sock seam, which may seem small to some, can be a huge issue for a child with sensory issues. (I’m proud to work for a company that keeps such little things in mind) Hypersensitivity to stimuli may occur in children with Autism or children who have Sensory Processing Disorder. I recently read an interesting article about Autistic children and managing sensory sensitivities. Please give it a quick read!
