I love circulars because if the dog jumps on me or the cat decides to play with the yarn, I never lose a stitch. I often use them instead of straights, and am about to tackle the magic loop! Two circulars was interesting too. Good luck! samm :XX:

Straight or Circular?
I love the dpns for small projects like mitts & socks...but the circs sure are handy for those larger items!

Happy Knitting,
Rhy :XX:

Yes circs are well worth it! As stated you can knit flat on them.
It amazing how much stess is taken off your arms when you dont have 14 inches of metal flopping out beyond your elbows.

You can use them for circular projects as well. Just knit around and around and around. I have a bunch of straights and every time I start a project on them I inevitably switch to my circs (even if I have to buy a new set)

Here is an easy pattern for using circular needles for the first time. I made a hat like this for my sister, and she loved it!
