Attention s’il vous plait! If you’re looking for the sock monsters, I’m afraid they’ve all upped sticks and moved over to Picky Miss. This whole announcement is a hyperlink, so just click on the text and repeat after me: There’s no place like home…


Craft Candy are proud to present their 1st annual Spring Fling Craft Fair!

a6-flyer-linkSpring Fling is an exciting new addition to Sheffield’s contemporary craft scene, showcasing some of the best art and craft this city has to offer. Spring Fling features craftspeople from Sheffield and beyond including local artists and makers from Bank Street Arts and Persistence Works.

More than your average craft fair, Spring Fling brings together the cream of crafters with a variety of products inspired by quality and originality. From artwork and jewellery to handmade textiles and toys, there is no limit to the creativity on offer.

Spring Fling will be held at the Workstation, next to the Showroom cinema, on 28th March 09 from 10am to 4pm.

Slightly off-topic, but the socks are resting.

We love Knitta! It appeals to our sense of the absurdly irreverent. Hurrah for these people, making the world a slightly fluffier place.

Happy brand new 2009 to everybody out there from everybody over here. The monsters have rather overindulged this festive season, so this is just a brief post to let y’all know we’ll be back as soon as we’ve all recovered.
In the meantime you can check out the monster-mart at

Oh noes! Honestly, you turn your back for a minute round here and…

Don’t worry, it looks worse than it was. Rest assured that the sock-dog was unharmed, Spinosaurus severely punished, and T-Rex made to sit on the stairs for five minutes for encouraging the naughtiness. “We only meant it as a joke” indeed…

It’s Halloween, and it isn’t just the ghouls and beasties knocking at your door for sweeties you should be worried about.  What’s under your bed?  What’s that scraping sound?  Are you sure you locked the cat-flap?  Beware, beware, for tonight the ZOMBIE SOCKS come out to play!  Keep your toes under the covers everyone…
