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.

            These are great blockers. The way they are made allows for quick drying. The metal is smooth and snagless. The only complaint I would have is I bought the small for women and they still seem a bit large. I wish they were a bit smaller still, but other then that they are really nice.

                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!
