I have all circular needles but I still love to use my Lantern Moon Rosewoods for large scarves for some reason. I haven't bought any straights in quite some time and I too also give them away to new knitters.

I have some straights but I never use them either.. I keep them just in case I use the circs for everything...

I honestly couldn't tell you the last time I used straights. I exclusively use circulars now.

I even have the Denise needle set and haven't used them since I got my Options .

I don't think I've used a straight needle in several years. That was way before Options came along I think. I just shipped a bunch of straights to my daughter who is learning to knit. After using my Options, I cant imagine I will ever use anything else, unless it is some REALLY weird size KP doesn't have.

OMGosh, i thought i was the only one who did that. circs were pretty uncomfortable to work with at first, and it took me a while to get used to them. in fact now i'm still more comfortable using straights, but i am missing a few sizes of straights and i won't bother buying them now than i have a Denise set.
