New Needles

I have a lot of knitting needles. And yet I continue to buy more.
It's no secret around here that I've been knitting a lot of plain self-striping socks these days. I'm currently obsessed with knitting them via magic loop and I have exactly one needle that works for socks. I don't really need to have more than one pair going at a time, but I would like the option of switching needle sizes.

I bought a Knitter's Pride Karbonz circular needle at Stitches Midwest (last year I think) and I love it. I use it for shawls all the time. So I decided to pick up a couple of smaller needles in the Karbonz to try on socks. I love the tips of these needles.

I've had to set aside the current sock in progress as I have a couple of deadlines looming, but when I pick it back up, I'll switch to these needles. I'm excited to give them a try!

Do you knit a lot of socks? What needles do you like to use (DPNs or circulars, brand, etc. I always like reading about what other knitters like!)?
