Smitten: A Lint-free Love Story by David Gordon

Mitten is just a left without her right mitten. Sock is neither right nor left, but he too is alone. The two halves of very different pairs stumble upon each other on a city sidewalk. They join forces to search for their other halves. A bicycle, a garbage can, the subway, some stray dogs and even the laundromat try to interfere in their quest. Through it all they stay by each others side, helping one another recover from their various ordeals. Eventually they realize that they make the perfect pair. They hug, "and from then on they were . . . SMITTEN"!
