I just finished my first pair of socks ever and I couldn't be happier. I used a really simple sock pattern I found on Ravelry paired with some beautiful wool yarn that I picked up at Rhinebeck. They knit up pretty quickly and they are so warm too. Also this was first time using double pointed needles. So, overall a great experience of firsts.
p.s. This is why I absolutely love knitting, there is always something new to learn or try. It never gets boring!
