Save My Socks - A Plea for Help

My daughter is a sockaholic!   Keeps nicking mine.  lol   I don't mind because my arthritic feet can't cope with some of the snug fits that you get with bought ones.  Makes my ankles swell and then I have to lie down with feet on cushion..which drives me mad when I have things to do/places to go!  lol.

So, I've decided that I am going to started knitting some and wondered if anyone could point me in the right direction of EASY sock patterns?   Easy patterns required for a) brain and b) arthriticky hands.   I would be very much obliged...and so would my feet:o) xx.

My pc is too slow in the search department.  So slow that it times out! 

PS.  What yarn do you use/not use?   I've got tons of mohair wool.  Don't suppose you can use that?     How long does it normally take to knit a pair?   Anyone know?   My tootsies are waiting in earnest:o)
