Straight vs circular needles

My new lace mohair punch patter says to use strait needs. Does it really matter? I am more comfortable with circular.

Forgive me if I’ve asked this before. :muah:

You can knit flat with circulars so go for it. I don’t even own straight needles! :thumbsup:

Just remember to turn at the end of the row.

Personally, I prefer straight needles, but you can definitely use circulars instead, if you like them better.
