      Great sock blocker. Size was a little hard to guess (small is up to size 6 women's shoe I'd say). The only thing I am not too fond off is that the top is wide (or too long?) so that my cuffs get stretched a little more that I would like. But it's a great blocker, the socks dry very fast, and it looks stylish in my closet :-).

      I own two pairs, large and medium. The medium fits socks for my foot, size 7.5-8 US shoe women's, and they do a great job. The large pair is another story.

      I bought the large pair first. I make socks for various guys (boyfriend, dad, uncle, etc.), and these blockers basically do the job for newly knit socks when I don't make a long cuff. Most of the guys I knit for prefer a sock cuff 2-3 inches longer than most patterns call for. These blockers do not support that easily. Also, after my boyfriend wears the socks a few times, the blockers seem to be on the small side (he has an US men's 11 shoe), especially if the socks stretch any. I am left feeling that they aren't quite big enough.

      Finally, the socks slide down too much when hung after washing. I got the blockers thinking that the hanger would be useful; it hasn't worked for my needs at all. Instead, I lay them over the drying rack. After they dry for a while, I can hang them up. This issue may also be due to the fact that the socks aren't stretched by the blocker at all.

      Overall, I like the idea of the design, but I can't use the blockers as designed, so I'll rate them 3 stars. I would love a long cuff version.

        I make comfy socks and every time I give a pair for a gift, I also give the sock blockers. They are "wonderful" and make your socks look great! Very speedy drying time and love the hanger!

          This is exactly what I was looking for! It is easy to slide knit socks on and of, wet or dry, and the hooks make it easy to hang over the shower rod while drying. I originally bought the plastic sock blockers from KnitPicks but the edges were really rough and snagged the yarn. These are much more useful.

                Its important to block hand-knit socks the first time. I didn't hang them by the hook because the wet socks fell off, but instead I propped them upside down (stick the hanger hook in a drawer with the sock up in the air, then shut the drawer). The socks dry quicker and in perfect shape. They come in 3 sizes--the medium is perfect for women's socks, the large for men's.

                          Was very satisfied with this type of sock blocker.
                          Socks dried very fast and blocked beautifully.
                          They came out looking professionally done.

                              I really like this sock blocker. It hangs anywhere, so socks take very little space while drying. The open construction allows air flow, so drying is even and thorough. Socks have a crisp shape when removed.
