I am on my second sock in the pair and this pattern is crazy easy! I am using  magic loop. (First time for that as well) because I kept getting horrid ladders on DPNs. I don't know why because I have used them a lot in the past but anywho this way is easy. 
 
Enjoy!

I liked these tutorials http://www.cometosilver.com/socks/. I had a pattern to but having pictures of the various stages really helped me see what I was supposed to be doing in a way words could not.
