Needle Storage
How does everyone store their needles?

Is there a needle holder available, that holds circular needles, maybe in some kind of clear pouch, so you can see them. Or do I just keep putting them all in a zippered pouch and dig through it when I need one?

Yeah, I know, silly question. Just wondering what other knitters do for needle storage.

I use one of these, called the Circular Solution. It keeps the circ cords nice and straight, and it's easy to find the size I need.

I actually started making one last week, so it still has to have all the little sizing labels put on it and stuff, but this is what I did...

I just knitted up some wire that i can thread my circs through... it's a bit sloppy at the moment, but it still needs work so don't be too harsh. It's gonna look schmick once it's finished, I assure you

Very clever, Dee!

If you Google 'Circular Solution' you can find lots of sites that sell them.

I sewed a circular needle holder from some fabric I had around. Its like the holders for straights, but the pockets are wider. I keep 2-3 sets in each pocket. theres a top flap that folds down, then I wrap it up and tie with a ribbon.

let me see if I have a picture.....




Now, I don't have a ton of individual circs... my denise interchangeables came with a case. but this holds my circs, my crochet needles, a pair of scissors, a folded pattern, and my measuring tape. The only thing I wish I had added was a smaller sealable pocket for stitch markers seaming needles etc. Next time.....

Herrschers has several options for circular knitting needle storage....
Zipper case
Hanging Storage - like what Ingrid & Conti have

Here is another one
And another
And yet another

I googled "Circular knitting needle storage" and found lots of options.

I hope you can find something that works well for you!

Jennifer Tallapenini has instructions for making a circ holder from spools tied in a vertical line, it's a lot like the one Ingrid showed really.
