Sock knitting is SO addictive. There are lots of brilliant yarns that make classic adult to funky kids socks. One 100g ball or two 50g makes an adult pair.
Sock yarn is generally 75% superwash wool/25% nylon (for durability).
You can use DPNs (double point needles) or circulars (25cm or a long cable for Magic Loop).
