It appears only Sherlock Holmes can solve your household’s latest mystery: The Case of the Disappearing Toddler Socks.
Get a clue and invest in footsies from Blindmice. The local biz puts forth a collection of adorably mismatched socks for infants and toddlers. With twenty-plus crazy color and pattern combos (raspberry/houndstooth, tangerine/herringbone, lime green/gingham), there’s always a new duo to try.
And since they are sold in sets of three or five, whenever the dog (or dryer) snacks on a stocking you can still have a perfect match.
Elementary, dear Watson.
