Ain't that the truth!!! I dragged my feet about trying socks for years and finally a friend convinced me to just make a pair. One of the best things I was ever told about making socks was not to overthink them to just do them. If you look at the pattern for socks you can get all wrapped up in the heel and get scared off, but if you just follow the pattern, ignore your head telling you it is too hard or it won't work or how can I do this and just do it, it becomes a cinch. I have made dozens of prs now and can do them practically with my eyes closed.

Olha Socks are really easy. If you can knit, purl, increase and decrease you can knit a sock. There are ways that you can knit the heel and never have to "wrap and turn." Cat Bordhi's Sweet Tomato Heel is one method and there are other similar techniques.

The only problem with socks is the addiction.
