I do magic loop all the time with my Options. Guess it's personal choice.

Here's where I got my needle case. I know 4 other people who use them and they all love them. I have the original case, not the multi-knitting case. I can fit almost two sets in the one I have and I prefer the snap to any other closure. She doesn't have them, but I HATE ties!

This is another Etsy site that has almost identical ones. They are a little more money, but look very well made.

Both sites now have numbers as well. I think they will either sell you the numbers or you can have her iron them on for you.

ETA: I take my fixed circs and just loop them around themselves and pop them in a longer slot at the top. I don't have any trouble with them. The cables go in those for me as well.
