Knitting socks can be addictive, I just finished my 4th pair, which were the only pair I didn't need help with. (I was known as the "heel and gusset problem child" at my local knitting store.) Hopefully with the great support you have here and the video, you will avoid that. A knitting friend of mine suggested that if I really wanted to understand socks and be able to do my own patterns, that I get the book Knitting Rules, by Stephanie Pearl McPhee. She was right, it was exactly what I needed. I'm not allowing myself to knit anymore socks until I've finished my Christmas projects.
