I voted for Interchangeables. 6 months ago I would have sworn to you that I would only knit with bamboo. I think my bamboo circulars are still my favorites, but ever since I got the KP Interchangeables I have fallen SO in love with them. They just glide!! Next month I'm buying the larger sizes that didn't come with the starter set and either the dpn's or the smaller cables (and more zip bags and end caps)!

I have a lot of straights because I bought them when I first started (about a year ago) ... but I have come to VERY much enjoy circular needles more so I have been slowy buying all sizes in circs ... which is expensive because I the addi turbo's ($$$) ... but 1 needle at a time is the way I look at it!!!

Straights, but by a very slim margin. All of my different needles are so useful in their own ways.

I can't seem to get on with circulars. Maybe it's because I'm used to 'holding' the right needle under my arm - in fact, it seems to hold itself up.

Circs always seem to make logjams of stitches, bunching up on the cable before hauling themselves up on the the left needle. a bit like traffic over the Pennines on a wet morning.

Can't be asked! -

Circulars, the short needle part fits my hands much better.

I have tons of straight needles that I've made, but I really prefer my interchangeables just because of the stitch room. I have some circs which I also like. I have Boyes but I hope to get Options soon.
