I have not tried making socks but I have been eyeing these looms:

My guess is a traditional Knifty Knitter has pegs too far apart for most socks.  I read somewhere that the stitches have to be pretty tight or the sock wears quickly.

Yup, the Knifty Knitter's pegs are too far apart for sock knitting. Although I have made many a chunky looking slipper on the blue Knifty Knitter.

I've got a fine gauge sock loom from that link that Idle Hands posted, but I haven't made any socks on it yet. It's for worsted weight yarn, so if you really want to use sock yarn, you should get the extra fine gauge loom.

Those adjustable looms look super rad, but alas I rarely have an extra $90 to spare. Tongue

Just a word of warning if you buy a loom from these folks--a lot of them are actually made to order, so it takes a long time to get your loom. They're super nice quality, though, so well worth the wait.
