One of knittings best-kept secrets is that socks really aren't that difficult (if I can do them, anyone can.) If you want to try your hand at it, I'd suggest Silver's Sock Class
or Lifestyle Toe Up Socks - No Swatch Needed
for starters. Make up a pair in worsted weight yarn to see how everything works, then do whatever you want. There are videos galore to help with heels and toes.
