Thanks for all the links, Barbara. I'm visiting each site to see what it is I need to know for the Sock Hop. As a sock knitter, I fear, I make a good writer. LOL!

I would be thrilled if someone could post a simpleton sock pattern to get a brand newbie sock knitter started ;) They all look so complicated but I desperately want to give it a shot.

Never mind, I had kids rushing me off the computer and didn't poke around enough. It looks like "Silver's Sock Class" may be just the thing for me. She says all I need to know is "cast on, knit & purl". That I can handle (I hope!) Thanks for all of the links.

Barbara, you promised me a hunk and you give me Stephen Colbert? I was SO looking forward to some eye candy and you've let me down!
