Anthem to the Lost Sock

What to do when you lose one sock to a matched pair?  Such a common problem, right?!  Did you know there is a Lost Sock Memorial Day?  On May 9th, we will observe Lost Sock Memorial Day here at SmartKnitKIDS with a one-day sale!  We also thought Bugsley’s Lost Sock “anthem” was a fun way to mark the occasion.


Bugsley’s Anthem to the Lost Sock

I have two feet, but only one sock.
It’s a common problem on my block.
When doing laundry, one sock gets lost.
I must find the other whatever the cost.

I like my socks matched pair to pair.
All stacked in the drawer with great care.
They feel the same on each of my feet.
And make my outfit quite complete.

But, when a pair of perfect socks
Goes into that big washing box.
I cross my fingers they both come out
So I don’t have to scream and shout.

Many times I’ll be missing just the one
And that, my friends, is not any fun.
I search and search through all my clothes
But I can only cover five of my toes.

The others are left out in the cold.
And I’m forced to pull out my billfold.
And buy a new pair of matching socks
At least there’s a Bugsley that comes in the box.

Do you have this problem of missing your socks?
And you’re thinking of ordering a brand new box?
You’re in such luck, ‘cause socks are on sale
So order a pair and they’ll come in the mail!

May 9 is Lost Sock Memorial Day
So the low price on socks really won’t stay.
Save 15% on each little pair
Order today and do not despair!

Introducing Splish Splash Bugsley


It’s only April, but this bug is ready for some sun and surf!  He’s got his sunscreen and arm floaties on and he’s ready for an exciting game of Marco Polo in the community swimming pool.  Splish Splash Bugsley has big summer plans that include trips to the local water park with his friends to ride water slides, lazy weekends water-skiing at the lake with his family, and even a summer vacation to the beach for a week.  You can bet that whatever Splish Splash Bugsley has on his schedule, it will include time in the water.  After a long day in the water, Splish Splash Bugsley can’t wait to slip on a pair of SmartKnitKIDS seam-free socks.  They feel so soft and cozy on Bugsley’s feet.


We hope that you enjoy these 5 new Bugsleys in your packages of SmartKnitKIDS socks.  And as Autism Awareness Month draws to a close, we really hope you and your family enjoy a happy and healthy seam-free summer!

Introducing Princess Bugsette

Bugsette-PrincessPrincess Bugsette is the Princess of Make-Believe!  She also loves to read and act out fairy tale stories.  Her favorite fairy tale is The Princess and the Pea, because it reminds her of her seam-sensitive “prince” and “princess” SmartKnitKIDS friends.  Do you know this story?

A prince wants to marry a princess, but can’t seem to find a suitable one.  They don’t seem to be “real” princesses.  One rainy night, when a rain-soaked young woman shows up at the prince’s door, claiming to be a princess, the prince decides to put her to the test.  He puts a pea in her bed underneath 20 mattresses.  In the morning, the young woman tells the prince that she wasn’t able to sleep at all because she could feel something hard in her bed all night.  The prince knows that only a true princess would have the sensitivity to feel the pea through all the mattresses.  The two marry and live happily ever after.

Princess Bugsette thinks that all of our seam-sensitive SmartKnitKIDS must be princes and princesses, too, since they can feel those pesky seams on annoying socks and undies.  SmartKnitKIDS seam-free products are the only products fit for all the true princes and princesses in the world.

And they all lived happily ever after.  THE END.

Introducing Sock It To Autsim Bugsley


Some of our most seam-sensitive kids are autistic kids.  That’s why SmartKnitKIDS and Bugsley work so hard to “sock it to” autism, or in other words to make a sock that autistic and seam-sensitive kids can happily wear – with no seams to bug ya!

Sock It Bugsley is a karate champion.  When he’s not winning tournaments around the world, he likes to practice his karate moves on seams!!  If Sock It Bugsley finds a seam, he immediately gives it a kick or a punch and it’s gone.  Just like that!

Hope you got one!
