I just poke the needle through an index card and measure the hole with my yellow plastic ruler.

That is such a great idea! I try to keep my sizer thingy in the same place, but it travels. I actually have two, but one is apparently lost in space. I never thought of making a hole and measuring. Now if I could only find my ruler. :thinking:

A cheaper way to label your circular needles: use a permanent marker and make a circle for each needle size (ex. size 7- 7 marks around needle).

Those tags are really cute!

That's a good idea, but doesn't it rub off? I'd be afraid it would leave marks on the yarn!

I used nail polish to "colour code" my double-ended crochet hooks. I just painted a stripe around it, or for the larger ones, "wrote" the size. When the polish started to wear, I would put on another coat. Even though it *does* wear off, it's not fast enough to stain yarn or anything. I haven't tried it with any of my circs yet, but I'd probably do it at the join, rather than on the tip.
