Knitcindy, that sounds perfect. Lucky you.
I use a drawer in a small chest of drawers. Cable needles fit through a plexiglass block with holes drilled into it. It fits up to 4 needles of each size from one to ten. The other needles are on their own and the best of luck to them. At least it keeps the cables from rounding up into tight curls.

Mine looks a lot older, but other than that everything's the same!!! The 2 side "wells" go all the way from top to the bottom!

That's splendid, but unfortunately not very portable, eh? I move my stuff around (office to living room and back again, to the doctor's office or dentist office, etc.) so much that I have to have portability.

Oh, perfect! Thanks for the link. I wonder where the "little bit of yarn to get you started" came from?

Knit your own
You could knit a holder for each set of knitting needles, and then to catagorize them, you can color code then (pink- 4mm, green-5mm, etc.) Then you could knit a bag to hold them all in. I think it could work. I'm going to try this with my knitting needles and crochet hooks.

You might be able to find some clear plastic shoe boxes to store your needles/supplies in. A friend of mine has a long thinner type of box and that's what she uses for her needles.

i thought that same way until i sat down and totaled up how much id spend on getting all the needles that i could make with the interchangables....it was definately a lot more than i had antipacted...so by buying hte interchangable set you are really saving money over the long term.

I have the Knit picks nickle plated...and i LOVE them! im currently saving for the harmonys!

I found this neat idea online. Can't wait to make one, it's going to solve my circ's issue! I've been wracking my brain trying to figure out something for them (they've been crammed into a narrow 3-bin plastic cabinet drawer) This is SO simple, and it'll be a fun wall hanging for my "everything room"

Here's the link

I found this at the yarn store today for 17 bucks, a bit pricey but I picked it up.
