    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.

    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.

              Comments about Bryspun Stainless Steel Sock Blockers:

              When I first saw these I thought they would block the socks too large for my size 7.5 feet. They are surprisingly deceptive. Perfect fit!
              I don't normally block my socks except for the very first time after finishing - just to see how they look, but these are great for showcasing/taking pictures of your finished socks.

              I bought one set of stainless steel ones and one set of plastic. I am trying them both to see how well they work.

              Service and delivery comments:

              A problem with the incorrect size was quickly remedied.

              Comments about Bryspun Stainless Steel Sock Blockers:

              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 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.
