Sock ROCK (well I don't know)
I am a new knitter that has never done socks.
I would like to know if there are any simple sock patterns. Most are too hard. I just can't seem to get the heel right. My friends tell me to stop whining and take knitting lessons. :violin: I don't. Help!!

This is probably the best sock tutorial. It's helped a number of people here get through their first sock.

I have to say, I am just finishing my first pair of socks. It was my knitting resolution for 2008. I tried to knit socks last year and something didn't "click"- I think it was the heel. I tried again two weeks ago and now I'm a sock knitting machine. In fact i just bought more sock yarn! I would reccommend that if you don't "get" it right away, don't worry about it. Go back to it in a couple months and you'll be a sock master!
Oh- and Silver's tutorial really is just great, so try that first.

OTN: Corona, Miter square blanket, Charity blankets
FO: Forest Canopy Shawl, Easy Baby Bootees, Kitty Pi, Ms. Marigold, Twinkle Toes, Josh's socks, Hedera socks, Spring Beret, Ashley's Birthday socks, Socks for the DBF's mom, grey socks for the DBF, my first socks, reversible cable scarf, ribbed hat for the BF, Manos Del Uruguay afghan, and a whole bunch of dishcloths!

This is the pattern that I used for my first pair of socks, actually it's the only pattern I have ever used. It says it isn't a beginners pattern, but I wouldn't take that to heart too much.

I'm going to say thanks for the links too. I wanted to make socks, but like Rosalie, the instructions were too difficult to understand.
OTN: Not a thing. I'm supposed to be studying.....

future plans: Afghan, baby blanket and a cabled...something ;hats and mittens to follow for kids.

I'll second Silver's Sock Tutorial. I knit my first pair of socks with that. Actually, they're more house socks because I did them in worsted weight yarn, but the tutorial is very clear and very easy to follow and she explains the the heel so well.
