Intimidated by a project

Why is it that even after 35 plus years of crochet experience I am intimidated by a project? It seems to me that with that much experience I should be able to look at any project and say "let's do it".

However I find myself intimidated by a simple thing. Socks. I want to make a pair of socks that I can wear in shoes, but I find myself at a stand still.

There is a part of me that knows I can do it, and another part of me that says, "yeah you can do it but they will be so bulky they will be like slippers". And that is exactly what I do not want.

If you google crochet sock pattern, you will end up with some great looking patterns, but they are all done in worsted weight yarn. I did find one that was done using sock weight yarn, so that might be a possibility.

The book "Crocheted Socks: 16 fun to stitch patterns" seems like it might be a possibility. I think I am going to head over to Michaels and get it since I have a %50 coupon.

So what else intimidates me as far as crochet projects? Not a whole lot... I have done sweaters and mittens so this should not intimidate me. I've decided that I will conquer socks. I will not be intimidated any more by a project that some of my friends say is easy.
