We sell socks. Lots & lots & lots of socks. All handmade by me in my living room with husband, dog & cat keeping me 'company'.

Shirley's Sock Studio has moved fully online after many years of running as a home-based businesses, a retailer of the finest quality yarns, needles and accessories.  The studio was a fulfillment of Shirley's ambition to sell fine products and of her passion for yarns.  Customers enjoyed visiting a knitting shop where the pace was unhurried and so much more welcoming than just another yarn store in a mall. 

Needles - Shirley also sells an extensive inventory of bamboo and maple knitting needles - straight, circular, double-pointed & crochet hooks.

Suffering from arthritis? Knitting, whether hand or machine knitting, is a wonderful exercise for problem fingers, good mental therapy, and relaxation for stress. Have patience - time to practice.
