I used the Loops & Threads sock loom with Patons Socks yarn in Clover Colors. This is a very inexpensive loom that I bought with a coupon at Michaels. I bought this new hook by KB. It has a fat grip that is amazing and a nice pointy tip perfect for socks. I took the little plastic tube that wraps around the tip of the pic and used it as a small yarn guide. It was smooth sailing with that little thing. I am done with my hat and because it is small gauge the e-wrap stitch came out nice.
