Boomerang Socks — Home Stretch

I’ve got to say that I’m loving Louise Robert‘s Boomerang sock pattern (page 112 of New Directions in Sock Knitting)! I’m making my way up the lace panel on the front of the foot and leg.

working up the front of the leg

The lace panel is worked back and forth in rows (as was the rest of the sock). It begins by filling in the top of the toe, then 20 stitches are worked straight up to the cuff. The panel is attached to one existing stitch at the sides of the foot and leg at the end of every row. After work the long rows that shaped the back of the leg and foot, this narrow panel will be done in no time!

  1. Those are amazing! I haven’t even been able to cast on yet! I can’t wait to see them finished! You are a rockstar! I can’t believe how quickly you have knit them! What is the next sock going to be?

  2. I really like the yarn you’ve chosen. The colors are much more appealing than the colors in the example in the book. How would you rate the difficulty of this pattern?

  3. I’d like to know how they feel on the foot. Are they comfortable? Please let us know when you have finished and tried them on.

  4. I’m so glad you’re working through this book…..I really enjoyed knitting this pair; they were easier than expected.
