I especially like circs because its a lot less likely that the knitting will fall off the needles, all I really have to do when I put them down is to slide the knitting on to the cable. (I still use point protectors though)

I use longer circs for blankets, etc. - things that require a lot of room for stitches. Makes it nice when you want to cap the ends and lay the WIP on the floor and assess my progress. I also use straights for small to med sized projects. I have some 7 inch chubby ones for scarves in a range of sizes and several bamboo and aluminum straights in scads of sizes in 10 inch and 14 inch.
I use 'em all!

My problem is that something like that hanger thingy will be an irresistable magnet for my kids... particularly the 2 year old and the nearly 4 year old. I have a hard enough time keeping my needles in a project, let alone keeping them organized!
May all your projects be frog-less, and all your patterns error-free!
