Sock Blockers?

Does anyone know whereabouts in the UK I can buy some wooden sock blockers from? I've searched the interwebs high and low but to no avail.

Can any fellow knitters help?

I had no luck either when I was looking. There were lots listed on Etsy in the USA if you don't mind the postage, the horrendous exchange rate AND waiting for them to arrive!

Do you mean these? http://www.socktopus.co.uk/tools.php

Sue - Yes, the postage from the States is ridiculous. Annoying.

Joy - Thanks for the link. Have looked there but they don't have the size I need in stock.

I renewed my efforts today and found this company:

No children's sizes, unfortunately. I'm ordering some in the small size so I'll let you know what I think of them. They're a bit expensive considering what they are but I imagine they'll last a long time.

Oops, sorry - ignore my previous, they're not wooden (I would prefer them in wood too).

I know exactly what you mean and I've seen them on the internet but can't for the life of me remember where. If I find them again I'll let you know.

Good news, I emailed a previous supplier on Ebay and he says he is gearing up to start listing them again in about a week

Have you tried posting a thread on crafteroo? I am sure that there is one for "where can I get?...." I would ask for you but I am totally in the dark as to what one is let alone what you would do with it! Vx
