I think most people new to knitting prefer straight needles over circular, but that is usually because they are nervous or worried about using circs. I know I was. Once I tried it though there is no going back. Circs are lighter, the needle is shorter so you don't get poked and you can knit SEAMLESS things! I have used straights since I learned to use circs, but they felt awkward and bulky to me. :rollseyes:

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
