I know some people prefer to knit with larger needles so here's some heavier weight sock patterns.

Silver's pattern gives info for heavier weight socks if you want to use DPNs.

And heavy-weight socks make great cool-weather slippers!

And heavier yarn is just easier to work with. I like my Telemark a LOT.

I enjoyed using a heavier weight yarn because it went so fast! I usually use sock weight and they can take so long. It was nice to see them progressing faster. I would recommend that anyone knitting their first socks use at least a DK weight- it's so much easier to see what you're doing.
