I am not a sock-knitter. Right?

Then why is it when I find myself in need for some quick and portable project I turn to socks? My friend Jenny said she'd seen me knitting socks more than anything else. OK, that might be because I tend to keep the more complicated stuff for home, but still... Yes definitely socks are not the only things I knit. In fact I really love knitting tops, and sweaters the most, and I do not understand those who only knit socks and nothing else...

Anyway, here is the latest finished socks. White cables:

They were kind of inspired by the Tyrolean socks from IK, but these are my usual toe up construction and I improvised the cables as I went along. The yarn is some sock-yarn from the second hand shop.

Well, for not a sock knitter, those socks you knit are beautiful. You might want to consider continuing to not be a sock knitter and knit socks anyway for the rest of your life. Those are beautiful!!!
Congratulations......
Oh, and where are you from?
