if you got the whole set with the little ID tags, you can put the ID tag with the corresponding needle tip in the plastic holder and you'll never forget which needle is which size.

:-) Yup, stick them in the bag with the needle. If you have to double up with the needles sick like the two in with the 10.5 that way you will know which is which. Big with small with ID tag and you're good to go!

I guess they don't come with them, you could either order them, or just take a 3x5 note card or something like that and write the number of the needles on that and slip it in the pocket with them.

Hope this helps. :hug:

They don't come with them. When I ordered the lady told me that was the best way to know the size....I think they were 1.99

some people have also cut apart the piece of cardboard that they came on and stored that in the slot with the points.

if you put them in order of size, you can just count the sections too.

I used a permanent marker and wrote the needle sizes on the outside of the pocket.

And I got some of the little rectangular sticky labels and wrote the size on them, then stuck them to the outside.

Since I am forever dropping my needles I always check my needlepoints with my knitting gauge just to be sure :star:
