I used to do Stealth Knitting, but then office relocated and now I have no hidey-holes to hide my hands. Acutally, I am not SURROUNDED by windows - no hidey-holes at all!!! So now I keep my knitting in my car so as not to wonder off into the land of temptation during the work day. Because honestly, I'm sure I'm along ... I'D RATHER BE KNITTING!!!

Circular Needles
I too am attempting to use circular needles for the first time to make a baby blanket. I had read the answer to the previously posted question about the circular needles and I think I understand that you cast on the required stiches (in my case 171) and then start knitting the first row and that end of the first row, you switch the needles in your hands. I am a left handed knitter but I start with the left needle and knit onto the right needle, then I would put the right needle (the one with all the stiches) in my left hand and start again. Are you flipping your work or does that not effect it. I really confuse myself by thinking about this. Please help my confused my brain!
PS - Thank you for the tip about straightening out the cable with the circular needles, I was thinking on letting it sit under a heavy book, but I like your idea better.

Hmm ... you call yourself a "left handed knitter", but it sounds like you knit just like I do and I'm right handed.

Once I cast on, I put that needle into my left hand and knit the sts onto my empty right hand needle. So for knitting the blanket on circs, there's no flipping. Just simply switch the needles in your hand.

I hope that's a little helpful
