I just have to crow a bit. I have a published pattern at http://www.knittersedge.com. It is a hand knit beginner's sock pattern that I have been refining since 2007 and I finally feel that it is good enough to present to the general public. At lot of tweaking and rewriting went into this pattern because I wanted to make sure it was suitable from beginners on. Learn how to take measurements and knit your sock to fit your foot!
