Circular knitting is great for making hats, mittens, socks, gloves, and a lot of other things. You can also knit certain sweaters in the round. Because most items that are knit in the round are worked in one piece, the need for extensive finishing, seaming, and weaving-in of ends is diminished. Another benefit is that you're always working from the right side: As a result, stranded color knitting and elaborate stitch patterns are easier to follow continuously.
