Yea! I made socks! I was being begged to make slipper socks so I finally sat down and figured it out... found a pretty simple pattern, some fairly large yarn and size 10 dpns and got to work... only took a couple days to get both done.
Here is the link to the pattern I pretty much followed to get these done. Hopefully they will be functional and I can make some better ones later now that I've gotten some practice in.
