Still relatively new to knitting, I've done some simple hats, scarves, cardigans and pullovers with success and not too many goofs and only occasional frogging. At the yarn shop a few days back, I saw a series of sock projects that the owner was making and fell in love with them. I am now obsessed and have to learn to make socks...but they do look rather scary to try...double pointed needles (doesn't it all fall off?), round needles (looks very small to work on). Can folks suggest a beginner pattern and whether round or double pointed would be better for a beginner?
