I’ve been following Silver’s Sock Class and it is incredibly simple to follow! I had never in my life made socks before but her tutorial is both well written and full of helpful pictures. Unfortunately I have to redo the sock due to it’s size, but, that was entirely my fault. I should have made a smaller size.
I haven’t tried socks on circs, but, I have found the DPNs to be quite simple. Before following Silver’s tutorial, I had also never before knitted in the round on DPNs. Other than the sock ending up being a bit too big, it looked great!
