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:

          The sock blocker frames are smooth and rounded and will not snag the knitting. I have U.S. size 5-1/2 D (wide) feet with an average calf that starts low. I usually knit a 68-stitch fingering weight sock with a flap-and-gusset heel to accommodate my high volume foot. The size Small blockers that I ordered are the perfect length for my socks and the blockers accommodate the high insteps of my socks without slack. However, the cuff portion of the blockers are narrower than my socks by about 1/2 to 3/4 inch. The built-in hooks on these blockers are large enough to hang from a shower rod for sock drying and they have plastic protector tips. Because these blockers have a narrow frame and can be hung, my socks dry noticeably faster on them than they do when using flat blockers or when drying unblocked.

              These are perfect for my US size 8.5 feet (European size 39). I have two sets of these blockers and I like them much better than the acrylic sets I have.

                I have a pair of wooden sock blockers, but wanted to try these as they were open and not solid. Feel drying time will be faster due to open design. Will buy other sizes you have in stock for a complete set.

                          These sock blockers really made a difference in evening out stitches. Socks also dry very quickly when hung on these hey are a little wide for the socks I make, but not bad They are certainly worth the money

                            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.
