Learning to knit with straight or circular needles?
Hello everyone! I'm so new to knitting that I haven't bought any knitting stuff yet. I have ordered a how-to dvd that I should receive next week. I'm going with a dvd because we have slow dial-up and it's so frustrating to try to watch online video clips.

Does a person need to use straight needles while learning to knit? Or is it possible to learn on circular needles? Is the technique different for each? It seems many of you love using circular needles. After doing much looking around, I think I want to get Harmony needles. They're just so beautiful!

I'm so glad I found this website, especially the forum. Thanks!
