I just made my dh a pair of slipper socks using bulky yarn (I used wool ease thick & quick, I think?). The pattern is called "Pebble Rib socks"... you can find a link through Ravelry, I think I got it off of epatterns? Sorry, I'm not on my computer so don't have the link right off. It's a pay for pattern, it cost me like $2. They were super quick, I even finished them both in like 3 days. They finised up the perfect size for my dh's size 8 feet.
My only suggestion would be to do the cuffs in a smaller needle size than called for, I find them to be too loose around the cuff.
