Needle Type
What are your favorite needle types?

I prefer straight. I learned knitting with them and used circs twice, but that didn't work for me.

i use circs for almost EVERYTHING.

I meant to vote for interchangeables but voted for straights by accident, d'oh!
I <3 My Denise set...

I really like my Boye NeedleMaster. I like them better than reg. circulars because there is more needle. I want to get the Options soon, they sound good. nickel plating, hmmm...

I said circs because I don't uses straights at all. I rarely even use dpns I use circs (both normal circs and interchangables) for everything.

I voted interchangeable. Second would be circs. I don't like using straights at all any more!

I voted interchangeables since I've got two sets, but I like plain circs too.

I don't think I've used a set of straights more than once since I got my Boye's set. They made my hands sore from trying to hold them up!

I chose interchangeables because I love love my new KP Options and I like my Denises...but, I love all of my circs...I have no need for straight needles.

I voted straights, but it was hard to choose between that and circs. Over here where I am, we don't have much choice in needle types to be honest. At least in the region where I am we don't... The local craft store (spotlight) has a limited selection of needle types and I'm really not fond of the circulars they do offer. I'd love a pair of really nice quality circulars, but I have no idea where to go to get them??
