Socks are surprisingly easy to do. I remember I was extremely intimidated because if you've ever noticed, sock patterns are usually VERY long! But it's really really easy if you just follow the directions.
yo - yarn over
Skop - Slip 1 stitch purlwise, knit next stitch, yo, pass slipped stitch over knit stitch (psso) and yarn over
drop yo - Knit all stitches but the yarn overs. Don't knit the yarn overs from your previous row; just let them drop off the needle.
kf/b - Knit into the front and back of the st
ktbl - Knit through the back loop of the st
m1f - Make One Front: From the front, lift loop between stitches with left needle, knit into back of loop.
instep: The top of the sock
If you can do those, you can make my socks.
