Well, I was thinking of labeling the slots for the sizes of the DPN's, but since I'm still collecting them, and reorganizing them constantly, I ditched the idea. I currently tell the size by putting them in order from small to large (first bottom row, then top row). Also, there are a few sizes I know just by looking at them, so it makes reference easy. Also, on the bamboo needles, the sizes are printed on the needles.

When in doubt, of course, I use my handy dandy needle gauge! (shown in the lower right pocket.)

Amigarabita-- yes I made the design, but it's based on other ones I've seen, so I didn't invent it totally. Although I did invent the trick for the back row, to hold long or short needles! (I'm rather proud of that!) :D

‎"There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep yourself open and aware to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open."
