Also, I have one other question...I noticed on this site that the instructional videos (which are heaven to me as a beginner) she uses circular needles, are those easier to ue than the ling straight ones?
I also really like using circulars for all projects. It is nice to be able to slide your work into the middle (on the cords) when you set it down -- not as many worries about stitches falling off a needle. Also, for larger projects, the weight of the knitting stays in the center and not all on one needle.
