Thank you for 'stopping in'. I will keep the shop as stocked as I can for as long as I can still get supplies in this rapidly changing new reality we are now living in. And of course, custom requests are still welcomed. In order to minimize trips to town and practice 'social distancing', I will be shipping ONCE A WEEK for the time being. :~) For more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or use the Contact Us page. Stay safe and healthy, everyone!!
Every try blocking or getting pix of your lacy or patterned socks on regular blockers? They don't always to a great job at showing off all that hard work, as you can only see half of it! Using straight blockers, you can now block them properly and photograph the WHOLE pattern!!
Laser cut from 1/4" birch plywood, these sock blockers are sanded smooth and finished with several coats of polyurethane to protect your hand knit treasures and bring out the beauty of the wood. This listing is for a set of two, and is READY TO SHIP!! They are 15" long and available in 4" and 4.5" widths.
*It is very important that you regularly check your blockers, especially the edges, and treat them with some kind of wood treatment, either a finishing oil or paste wax, to maintain them and prevent them from drying out and keep them waterproof. As they are wood, there is potential for 'wear and tear', even with careful use, which can usually be repaired with a very fine sand paper clear spray coat - even clear fingernail polish will do the trick.*
