Mine are piled in a cardboard box.

BUT... someday when I'm feeling organized, this is what I'm gonna do: Get a bunch of those tiny little kid-sized hair rubber bands and band together each set. Then put them in those little divided cups made for pencils and pens to stand up in.

When I'm done with a project, I bind them together with a rubber band. If I'm feeling like I won't know what size they are, I add a small slip of paper under the rubber band with the size on it. Then I just throw it in with my stash, but of course, I only have like three sizes right now.

Not including all the ones that are in various projects and scattered in odd "safe places" in my home, I have a plastic drawer thingy I keep my needle collection in. I bought 2 of those plastic drawers {stackable} individually, although one on wheels would work just as well. I have my circs that are in packages in one drawer, and my straights in another. I have one of those drawer dividers {soon to be expanded to one per size for ones I have more than 3 sets of} in one of them with my dpns elastic banded together by size. I keep a package of those tiny elastics at my desk at all times. I use them for keeping pairs of straights together, as "point protectors" to keep my projects on the needles. They even make good stitch markers when I'm casting on and need to count stitches {I use the markers I make otherwise!}.

I only have 2 sets of them, but I keep them bound together with a rubber band. I've labeled each in the middle with a sharp-point permanent marker and they are kept with my crochet hooks in a container intended for pencils.

Well... mine are bound together with elastic bands, but I haven't organized them in one spot yet. A good number of them are stored in a pencil case though.

I had jaw surgery in September, so I have lots of those little braces elastics leftover from when I was banded together. I use those to keep the needles together. They work great, and can also double as stitch markers when I need them.

And just in case anyone is wondering - I'm talking about the unused elastics! The used ones all went in the garbage. :rollseyes:

Probably the best thing for DPN's is those pencil boxes a lot of kids get to store pens and pencils in them. They are starting to come in great colors too.

I got three of these for Xmas, straight, DPNs, & circs. They are clear and fold up! Only problem: I need more! (And my 5" DPNs kinda slip down a little to far inside the pockets)

Ram Wools sells these. I've looked at them at the store, and they're pretty cool, but they just don't fit in with my collection of needles and the way I like to store stuff.
