Seems that my policy of "No Empty Needles" is a truism. Even when I have empty size US 1 DPN's, they must have yarn cast on them. Even if they're going to be socks.
Yes, I know I don't normally knit socks, but I found them so very welcome last winter... and look at that yarn! One of my favorite colorways from Fearless Fibers ("Sublime"... and I think it is). I have not used this sock base yet (it's wool/cashmere/nylon) and it feels fab to the touch. Oh, and did I mention how beautiful the colors are?
Now just to decide which pattern!
Edited to add: so I just went thru my Ravelry queue. I have one pair of socks in my queue. Out of 514 queued projects.
