I think I am getting close to being crazy enough to attempt to knit a pair of socks. I do magic loop knitting -- should I try to find sock patterns that use magic loop or does it not matter?
And having looked at a few sock patterns (for example, the latest knit picks catalogue) I notice that most patterns are for women size medium (I'm 5'11" and my feet reflect that fact). Is it difficult to change the sock size? Are there nice sock patterns for the "big footed"?
And which sock pattern would you suggest for a relatively new knitter (since mid may)?
