Island Girl Sock Blockers

I love knitting socks!  In the past when I’ve washed them (I like to hand-wash my knit socks), I’ve laid them out to dry on a towel.  But when Raymond’s worship socks were pau I wanted to photograph them and block them before I gave them to him.  So Nolemana helped me make some basic wire-hanger sock blockers, and I really liked the way the socks dried. I’d seen some really neat sock blockers from ChappyWoman.  But I wanted something really different than what I’d seen.  Gotta be unique, right?

I emailed Chappy and asked her if she had any kind of island style designs.  She asked me what I had in mind, and I said, “Oh, maybe like a palm tree or something”. 

Next morning, I had an email from Chappy, including a prototype palm tree design!  I loved it!  So I immediately ordered a pair of palm tree sock blockers in my size.

They arrived within a couple of weeks, and I am so pleased with them!  I never used to wear socks in Hawai‘i; heck, I hardly ever wore shoes!  But here on the mainland, I wear them all winter long, and now I have these great sock blockers to dry and shape them on!

I love the way they turned out:

Try look how the green makes the palm trees look real!

Island girl sock blockers!  I love them!
