I use circs for 99% of the knitting I do. I find it is more comfortable for me. The weight of the knitting sits in your lap and is not held up by your wrists when you use circs. Also, knitting on circs is much easier to store than on straights. I like it much better. Good luck and happy knitting!
I love to give homemade gifts... which one of my kids do you want?
