What do you store them in?
What do you store your crochet hooks in? I started out with only a few crochet hooks so I didn't have to worry about it. I now find that my crochet hook collection is growing and I need somewhere to store them all.

I suppose I could put them in one of those little roll up knitting needle holder things. But the pockets are kind of deep - and my knitting needles are stored in that! LOL

Then today I saw a crochet hook organizer. It was felted and OH so cute! But the woman at the LYS didn't have a pattern for it. Grr!!

So... how do you store your crochet hooks?

I have a really nice roll-up case that a swap partner on Crochetville made for me. I've made a couple of felted hook cases that turned out really nicely. Here are the links:

right now they are all in a makeup bag that zips closed. (one of those freebies when you buy makeup) I am going to make a roll up holder for myself out of fabric: it uses the same idea as the knitting needle rolls, but has pockets that are narrower and not as deep.

I have a little old pencil box from first grade or so. My crochet hooks fit in there pretty well!

Right now, they're sitting in a Shrek3 glass from McDonalds, as if they were pens. :D

I keep most of mine in a zippered make-up type case that I carry in my bag, but I keep duplicates in a mug near my work area which allows me access to the hooks to help me correct my knitting or picking up stitches, without depriving my current crochet projects of the hooks used. I also have the zippered case in my bag for the same reason and so I have them in case a friend wants me to demonstrate a crochet stitch or help with a pattern.

The only ones I don't carry with me everywhere are my thread hooks.

I do have my hubby working on a better holder for near my work area, but he is being slow on that for me.

Mine are in a Japanese fabric covered box that a present from one of our students brought from Japan years ago. It has little latches that I love, and it looks beautiful on the shelf. samm

I store mine like Riss does, except my hooks are in an old jam jar.

hooks
Mine are not organized at all right now and I intend to gather them all up into one spot. But I have several old hooks that belonged to my grandmother and great grandmother (that I cherish) and the steel hooks are stored in an old cigar case. I don't know if you can still buy cigars like that, but the case is perfect. I've always thought I'd like to collect old hooks. Do yall know of anyone who does? I just wonder where you go to find them.

I use a plastic zippered pencil pouch that has I side with three holes in it that I got at the $1 store. It keeps my hooks and I can put it in my binder where I file misc patterns.
