You might want to look at Lifestyle Socks which is the method I use and you can make them to fit. For your first pair, might I suggest you work them in a heavier yarn maybe to fit yourself and then you'll end up with thick, warm socks that will work as slippers. Socks aren't really difficult but there are things to learn and learning with heavier yarn and larger needles is easier. When/if you need help, just holler! Other than the issue of size, basic socks are gender nonspecific too.
