My straight needles are mostly used as plant stakes since I prefer circs for everything. Except for the one that I subbed for a broken rivet in my laundry drying rack. Still have all my dpns, neatly sorted, in a needle roll. The only time I have used them in recent memory was when I started a sock-yarn-leftover mitered square blanket. They seemed more manageable than circs for such small pieces; I wrapped a rubber band around one end of each as a stopper, which worked a treat.

I have three sets of interchangeable needles -- a Boye set I bought nearly 30 years ago but don't use any more, a Denise set that I never use any more, and a KnitPicks set that I have added to many times. Besides the nickel tips, I have Harmony tips #4 to #7 and a couple pairs of the Zephyr tips. Lots of cables, too. Occasionally I drool over the Addi interchangeable set, then think about whether I really need a $150 set of needles, and drop the subject. My fixed circs are in a 3-ring binder, sorted by size.
