Have you seen these: sock blockers

Every time I go to get a CD out of the cabinet where we store them, I knock the wire sock blockers that hang from the knob onto the floor with a huge clatter. This poses two questions for me. Firstly, why do I persist in putting them back in exactly the same place, knowing full well that I'll only knock them off again? And secondly, do quieter sock blockers exist?

Plastic seems like a suitable substitute material and there are options available from the big brands, these for instance:

 KnitPro AQUA sock blockers

However,  for something a bit different, some of these from Etsy might suit:

 Fruity themed sock blockers?

As a bit of a cheapskate though, I think I should really follow Eskimimi's advice and simply make my own.
