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!
