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:

    I have one antique set of sock stretchers or blockers and they are adjustable to different sizes. I love them but have not been able to find more. I saw these and ordered them, and they are actually pretty good. I use them to block our heavy socks that we wear to shovel snow, as we live in New England and get a lot of snow during winter. Without blocking, they tend to shrink after washing. I like these, as they are sturdy, just not adjustable, which would be nice, but that is the only thing I don't care for. These would be great for knitting socks also. I would buy them again. Bought my husband large size, for his 10 1/2 shoe size, and med for my 8 shoe size foot.

    These sock blockers are so smooth and because they are made of wire, there is so much air flowing through them, tge socks dry so quickly. I love them!

    I purchased the large size for my husbands socks and they work terrific, I need to purchase the smaller size for my socks! Socks dry faster, as air can get through!

        After I realized how much better socks look after being blocked, I really wanted to get the sock forms. I put so much work into socks and want them to look professional. These sock forms are wonderful! They are easy to work with, hardy because they're metal, and I can hang them in my closet until I need them.

        Comments about Bryspun Stainless Steel Sock Blockers:

        This is designed to hang over a rod -- but the hook at the top is too small to hang over the bath curtain rod or my closet rod. I laid it flat over a clothes drying rack and it worked well -- the open construction helped the socks to dry quickly and to a very good shape. It is quite sturdy.

            Comments about Bryspun Stainless Steel Sock Blockers:

            I love to block my socks. But (as many sock knitters comment) Sock blockers stretch out the cuff. It looks good for showing off your socks, for drying your socks. But the cuff stretches out and they fall down your leg. So I only use the blockers when I want to take a photo. If they didn't have this problem I would keep all my socks on hanger blockers in my closet rather than a drawer.

              The large size is HUGE! I wear a size 11 women's shoes, and they are too large! So order down in size from what you might expect.
