Circular Needle Storage
Hi,

Anybody out there store their circular needles in Skacel's circular needle pouch
http://skacelknitting.com/products/i...keyword=pouch?

How about the Knit Stick Sack http://www.ashlandsky.com/as/Welcome.html for circular needles? Are you happy with your purchase? Thanks!

I use the Circular Solution to store my needles. It keeps the cords nice and straight, and can hold as many as you want to put in there.

Circular Needle Storage - Context Added :o)
Hi,

Thanks for the suggestions! I should have mentioned that I want to keep my needles organized in something that will fit into either: 1) A big plastic container (w/lid) along with extra yarn or 2) In a carpet bag when I'm traveling or moving from room to room. So I guess I'm looking for something smaller and portable when needed. I currently have fewer than 10 circular needles (Addi's).

56 circs. Wow! I'd love to hear more about your collection!

Thanks again,
Trudie

Hi Rebecca,

Thanks for sharing your collection of circular needles. I've been longing for a set of Denise Interchangeables, but haven't been able to justify to myself why I would need two sets of circular needles (Addi's and Denise's). I would LOVE an excuse to get Amy's colored Denises. Can you help me?

Oh! I love the Circular Solution. There's a pattern for something like that in S 'n B, but since it's sewn and I can't sew I can't make it. I might have to order that. TY for posting it.

I just started knitting back in April, so I'm slowly building my needle collection. I started off with two pair of bamboo straights for a beginning knitting class, then got a few Addi's for my next projects. I wasn't sure that I wanted to get the Denise set since I like the Addi's so much, but I couldn't resist Amy's rainbow Denise set. I love it! I still love my Addi's, but I find it just depends on the yarn I'm using for a project, or what needles I have available that aren't already in another project I've started. Plus, I love having needle sizes 5 - 15 right there in case I need them. And it's so easy to switch needle sizes within a pattern. A baby hat I'm making right now starts out on size 6 needles, and then moves to size 8. Making the hat with the Denises sure makes the switch super easy!

So I love them both! And it sure is handy to be able to fit that Denise case right in my knitting bag. (Plus Amy sent them off to me very quickly once I'd ordered them! I was surprised how fast they arrived.) Of course I also have a few more Addi's on my wish list... :D

Here are a few ideas...
http://www.hgtv.com/hgtv/crafting/ar...310591,00.html

I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do with my circulars. Right now I have a photo album where I can slip in the needles, but it's not the the best. Addis are fine, but my bamboo circulars want to curl back into the orginal shape. I'm on the look out for the perfect cd or photo album, but I like the notebook idea too. Those pencil pouches that fit in notebooks may work well. I'll have to keep an eye out when the back to school supplies are stocked!

:D Trudy, I agree with what Lisa said. I was using my addis 100% of the time until just recently when something told me to pick up my denises...and, baby, they knit like butta! I was knitting a top for my sister using cotton yarn and I was knitting very tightly with my addis, but, I found that I don't knit so tightly with my Denises....I'm loving them both, I must say And, OMGoodness, I'm so glad I didn't sell my Denise set, which I had briefly thought about doing...can u imagine ?!
