Another sock?

I don't know what's gotten into me but I feel like knitting more socks. Until last week, the last time I had knitted a pair of socks had been in December of 2005.
The yarn for this newest pair is Schaefer Yarn Company's "Anne". I love the color variegation and the size of the skein of yarn, 560 yards!
Also, I'm using some new size 1 double pointed needles from Knitpicks. The tips on them are great, nice & pointy. However I do find these needles very slippery. At least 5 times, I have accidentally dropped a stitch. This never happens with my bamboo double pointed needles from Crystal Palace.
For the pattern, I'm using the Yarn Harlot's "Sock Recipe" in the book Knitting Rules.
