silly sock question
I'm looking for a good basic sock pattern for someone who's never made socks (me!) -- something that will get me started on the techniques I need to know but is also pretty basic (don't need any special patterns knit into the socks yet). Does anyone have any suggestions? Yarn suggestions would be helpful, too, although the yarn stores around here seem to have plenty to chose from.
Thanks! Sign me, beginning again and making progress :)
