Socks...Am I nuts?

Well I got the great idea today to make socks. I never thought I would ever make anything to wear (other than scarves, you know simple) and for some reason I decided to try the whole sock thing. I know why. After I read the bookbookbook, I just felt like I could. Wow. What was I thinking? I mean, I have never even used dpns (double-pointed needles for those of you who don't knit). Well I mean I do have a tube so that's a step in the right direction, right? But the St st (stockinette stitch) turned out to be garter stitch. So the top is a rib, the middle rows are garter and the ones I am doing now look like St st. What's up with that? Should I get "Knitted Socks for Dummies"? Or is there an easy explanation for what I did? Maybe I just hurt myself yesterday after I finished banging my head on the wall? Well, I guess I should have used some of my squares to cushion the blows.
Well I guess there is always tomorrow, huh?
