About 4 years ago I saw this article in Martha Stewart Living Mag and tore it out and have kept it until now. Here is the link:
http://www.marthastewart.com/portal/...itting%20socks

I just knit the first sock and am on the second and I thought it was really easy. The pictures were easy to see and the instructions were good. (the instructions for picking up stitches was vague but I have a good book to reference) Now, there is no gauge given so I used the sock yarn listed in the article (Regia) and size 3 dpn's. The first sock fits and looks great. You could find a yarn with a similar gauge if you couldn't find the Regia.

Good luck, sock knitting is so great! You're going to love it!

If that link doesn't work, go to her website and type "knitting socks" into the search area. It's the first article that comes up. There are instructions for a christmas stocking and baby socks in the same pattern as well.
