What's Your Favorite Yarn Weight For Socks?
So far my favorite sock yarn weight has been GGH's "sport" Weight with which I made these:

Ravelry has this listed as "sport" weight, but as DK. I got this yarn from my secret pal exchange here on KH last year and it's STILL my favorite so far!

I've enjoyed knitting socks with DK/sport weight much more than with Knit Picks' Essentials which yarndex calls a fingering weight.
A righteous man has regard for the life of his animal (Proverbs 12:10)
