If you’re interested in top down socks, you’ll learn casting on and how to hold your double pointed needles, turning the heels and doing the Kitchener stitch to close your toes.  For toe up socks, you’ll learn a figure 8 cast on, turning heels and a stretchy bind off.  Socks aren’t difficult, but there are lots of tricks and tips that make the experience fun and stress free!
