I like your hanging holder. I fight the curl, so store mine in long empty gift wrapping tubes in two long under-the-bed containers.

I keep my good Chiaogoo interchangeable in the case then bought a pencil case for my extra cables then another for the other bits....for my fixed circular needles I have a photo album and place a needle in each slot ..I must take a pic as it's very best to store on my shelf

I agree. I'm glad I'm not the only one that feel the same way. I don't lend or borrow, either.

I. Feel the same as I've lost so many items over the years....I made up a set of cheaper circular needles and a few other accessories for each of my an extra, if a friend wants to borrow I'll probably gift her the kit

I've had mine in a holder that was sold by Interweave Knits. Have had this for years. Separate channels deep enough to hold several of one size. I don't remember how much it cost but it wasn't free. It has been so many years that I may be incorrect where it came from. As I recall, at the time I thought it was a little pricey but needed it at any rate. I think it holds all needles up to size 17. It's also hung on the back of a closet door that I can't get to easily or I would check to be sure.

My grandmother was a prolific knitter, who had every size circular known to man. She stored them in their original bags in pocket pages in a ring binder, organized in ascending size. It was always very easy to find what you needed and as long as you put it back where it came from, the system worked well. Because they were in original packaging, you could put two or three smaller gauge in the same pocket, with larger ones such as 13 and 15 in one as singles.

We bought a lot of the pocket pages in last August, when the school supplies were stocked everywhere. It is similar to a page protector but has a food storage bag type zipper on one end. We would flip every other page so that you didn't have all of the zippers on the same end, since that would make it difficult to close the binder. We also organized all of her knitting pamphlets and pattern manuals the same way and put labels on the spines so you knew which binder to grab when you were looking for something.

I'd love to see a picture of this. I don't remember seeing one on Interweave but if it was pricey I probably passed on it.
