I have an obsession.

Some time ago I started seeing these socks on Pinterest. Long colorful socks with the accent of flowers. These socks:

Pics are from Pinterest – I do not own them and I do not have any right on them

Only trouble was that those pictures didn’t lead to anything. Just pictures. Beautiful beautiful socks…

More I saw these, more my obsession grew. I needed a pattern. I started my search – using all the keywords imaginable, all the sites and forums I knew and all the contacts I had….

I found it – Pinterest board with sock pictures is here and blog where those socks came from is here.

And trouble again. Blog is in Finnish. Although I’m trying to study Finnish – well – I suck at it at this point….

So, with the help of a friend I looked through the blog and we still didn’t find a pattern…

…until few weeks ago, when I searched for new yarns to try, I foundΒ Novita.

Purely by accident… there was my obsession….

Well, I needed this magazine, of course. But how… ? From where…? From who…?

Hehee – my dear husband is visiting Finland regularly. But he will rather die then buy me some knitting stuff. Here’s where my flu comes in πŸ™‚

He felt so bad that I was sick so long, so he went and searched and bought it for me πŸ˜€ (I would show you my huge grin but my face is still pale like a zombie)

Look – here it is:

And my socks-to-be:

Next step – buying yarn and start knitting…in Finnish…

That won’t stop me – I would learn to knit in Chinese if I had to πŸ˜€

    Omg, lucky you!! I also searched for the pattern and my search stopped at that Finnish blog, coz there was nowhere else to go from there and I don’t read a word in Finnish.
    Can’t wait to see your finished socks! They are gorgeous!

      Yep, it was so annoying – just wanting the pattern and there isn’t any even if I’m willing to pay πŸ™‚ (That shows how internet have spoiled knitters with all available patterns :D) I was really lucky that I stumbled upon an ad – I wouldn’t found it otherwise πŸ™‚

    I’d like the pattern, too! I don’t know enough computer stuff to find anything on Pinterest and have trouble understanding this site as well. (All attempts (4) to download my free pattern have failed.) My discouraged pattern hunt for these knee highs (not for me – for my daughters!) left me resolved to figure out details from a print of the picture.

    Please let me know if you figure something out.
