Have you ever shrunk your favorite socks? Did your special comfy hand knit socks get thrown into the dryer by mistake?

Save the day with some sock blockers! Just wet the socks, put them on the sock blocker and Alakazam! Good as new.

I just put up single sock blockers on my etsy site. They have a built in needle gauge and are made of acrylic so they won’t warp or splinter.

And here is a quick article on sock knitting tips. This is from Sock Knitting Tips by Peggy Adamik

Excerp…

“Socks are really easy to make. Socks are really hard. Socks are fun. Socks are a pain. Socks are great. Socks are too much trouble. If you’re a knitter who tends to agree more with the second statement than the first, but you’d still like to try making your own socks, here are a few tips to make the process easier.”

Check out these sock blockers I made.

I had a chance to use a really cool laser cutter at school and this is what I made.

I wanted to make a sock blocker that would not absorb moisture so I used acrylic material. (The acrylic is also recycled from a local plastic supplier from their smaller stock bin.)

And I thought it would be cool to include a needle gauge while I was at it. Let me know what you think.

I naturally put up a pair at my etsy site. www.sevenyaks.etsy.com if you wanted your own.
