Please allow me to shed some light on previous reviews regarding the edges on these blockers. I purchased a set of large and a set of small blockers (for my husband's size and my size). The large set is made of smooth plastic and has nice rounded/smooth edges. The small set is made of a more textured plastic (might be a composite plastic?) and has the sharp rough-in-in-a-couple-places edges described in the review from 05-30-12. So I'm not sure if edge/plastic type depends on the size (different sizes from different suppliers) or simply the supplier KP gets that size blocker from at a particular time; the variance isn't ideal of course but both are still good products. I haven't used the smalls to actually block socks yet but I don't think 2 stars is fair...I have done some rub tests with various yarns and did not encounter snagging. Hope others find this information helpful.

These are really nice! I haven't experienced any roughness or anything, and they're nice and sturdy. I'm very pleased with them!

I bought these sock blockers over others because they were less expensive and now I know why. The edges were very rough and it was impossible to get a sock on without snagging the yarn considerably. I ended up sanding the edges with fine grade sand paper and painting them with clear nail polish and now I can get a sock on. I wanted to return them but thought it was silly to spend half of their cost shipping them back. When I buy a product I expect it to work properly right out of the package (unless otherwise stated) so I was quite annoyed that I had to "fix" the blockers before being able to use them.
