I agree since I started using circular needles I dont lose as many or worry as much about losing them when I take my knitting with me anywhere. I use mine for everything...

They're also attached so you're not digging a needle out of the sofa cushions.

Thats what I was wondering. So you use them for all projects, not only the ones knit in the round. It is less cumbersome, finding needles counting, etc. I will just have to get used to it. That and I bought a ton of straight needles. lol

I think the only straight needles I have anymore are DPN.
