How are your knitting needles organized?
Even though I just started knitting, I have about a million pairs of knitting needles because I bought a big lot of knitting and crafty stuff a fe wmonths ago.

I have no idea how to organize these so that they're easily accessible!!

I was wondering how everyone organizes their knitting needles, and if there are any suggestions for tools to help me organize mine? Is there some cool needle organizer thing that would help?

TIA!

The best thing I've found for circulars is The Circular Solution--it keeps them organized and 'relaxed'. Just keep a sizer attached, and you're set to go. I have a zip up case for my straights, but the zipper broke, so I'm looking for something better in that department, too.

Looking at all those circs is making me jealous

I want to buy more. "But honey, I need them. All the other knitters have them!" "If all the other knitters jumped off of a cliff, would you?" "Of course! There's probably a yarn sale at the bottom of that cliff!"

I was fortunate enough to win a Jordana Paige needle case during KH's 1st anniversary back in November. I really like it because I can haul it around with me during road trips, like to mom's house. But it is big so I couldn't take it on an airplane with me or something. It's got two compartments in it to organize how you want. I started out doing metal/non metal, but I now go short/tall. I liked using a flower vase before, but my needles were always vulnerable to animal mischief. I still need to do something with my circulars tho, now that I'm collecting more of those.

I have a wrap case I made for my straights. Unfortunately I really didnt factor in DPNS and how short those are, so those right now are in a pencil box. I have needlemaster and denise sets for my circulars, and other circulars, ADDI's, etc. are in their little bags. All of this is in a basket. It is about half as organzied as I would like.

Maybethis will help? I think you can make it longer to fit more needles on it... I need to make one for my metal needles...

I think you could even use a variety of colors to color code it... like sizes or something. You could probably make one hangable too.
