Yesterday I bought (and read) Knitting Vintage Socks: New Twists on Classic Patterns. What a great book! I'm already planning my next socks (is sock knitting addicting? I seem to always come back to them eventually).

Nancy Bush has so much information in this book. I love all the variations on heels and toes. My only trouble is many of the socks I'd love to knit only have a pattern for one size. Sure there are larger sizes in the book, but what if I don't want to knit the sock that fits? (If the sock fits, wear it?)

Does anyone out there have tips on how I can adjust sock pattern sizes? I've always followed a pattern, never knitted willy nilly.... I'm frightened! What if it blows up?
