My needle collection is really all over the place.
It's generally made up of whatever needles I could afford when I did my first project that called for that size needle.   Tongue

I really do prefer metal needles whenever possible, I like to shove my stitches all around, and being able to move them easily makes things go a lot more quickly.
I got a pretty big package of different sized plastic needles for Christmas one year (they're striped like candy canes) and I really don't like them.  I find them far too sticky on the yarn.
I also have some vintage plastic circular needles that I bought at a consignment shop, and I feel like those are much less sticky.  I also like the idea that someone used them to knit decades ago, but that may just be me.  =)

I'm not much of a sock knitter, but for other things I generally prefer double pointed needles over circular needles, just because I feel like it gives me more flexibility.
