Does anyone else find that there seems to be a trend for knitting patterns to use circular needles?

It’s frustrating at the moment because I am seeing lots of lovely knitting patterns, but when I look into them, the majority seem to be on circular needles. Now, I can knit on circular, but don’t enjoy it as I tend to tuck my needles under my arms. Is it just me?


I prefer using the circs because there’s less hanging off the ends for me. it all sits in my lap, easier on the wrists. in the end, it’s just what you are use to and how you enjoy knitting, there are no knitting police so do what makes you enjoy it most :).


I know what you mean… the number of knitting needles I have bent because of too many stitches or heavy wool. I shall just have to keep trying circular needles every now and again
