A Sock Yarn Spree

I spent last week in Maine, and it seems I couldn't leave a yarn store without picking up some sock yarn.



Most purchases were from Quiltessentials in Auburn, a quilt store with a small but stellar inventory of yarns. Because I couldn't wait until I got home, I went back to the store the next day to pick up some extra needles and get this skein wound into a ball:



This is Done Roving, and I love it. It's not obvious from the picture, but the colors are really unusual: shades of turquoise and red clay (the colorway is called "Southwestern"). And what do you know...these socks I'm knitting up are sized to fit me.

How difficult is it to knit socks? Can a beginner do it? What about someone with a short attention span?
