I have circular needles. I put them in a bag with a needle gauge. What is the best way to store them and recognise the size if the gauge is not readily available. Do clear ziplock bags work? Won't they become bulky when your collection of needles grow. I have about 25 circular needles. Welcome some suggestions. Thank you.

Mine are in the original package and filed according to size in a shoe box.

Mine are in baggies. If they don’t have the size engraved like some bamboo needles I put the size on with a sharpie. No, it doesn’t come off on my knitting. And I put the needle size and length on the bag and all are stored in a plastic case.

Offhand Designs case
Check Ravelry or ebay for destash
It elevates a simple case into perfection
Yes pricey but so worth it

Mine are stored by hanging over a door knob, which keeps them fairly straightened. I keep a needle size gauge handy.

I bought 2 hangers for our hoses but they were more trouble than help sooooo I asked my husband to put them on the inside of the doors of my yarn storage cupboard. Needles are now easy to find - if I put them back after use, of course! It took a couple of weeks for the cords to relax.

I crocheted a piece of fabric and hang it up with a skirt hanger. I weave all my circulars through the fabric and they hang free. I keep a needle gauge on the same hanger...

I sew, so I made myself an awesome hanging holder. It's got space for all sizes, it's about 8" wide and maybe 30 inches long with horizontal stitching to make sleeves for them. I just push them through and they hang on a clothes hanger on my craft room door. The fabric has to be pretty stiff, I made the backing double duck cloth. With it loaded it started to curl in, so in one of the sleeves I put a metal ruler to hole it straight. I didn't want them all curled up and get stuck that way, so made this thing as wide as I did. I have a size gauge on a heavy string attached to the hanger too. I numbered each space for those sizes. I need to make another one since I have way more needles than can fit into the spaces. (why so many? Ihave no idea, but I have been away from home and needed a certain size needle that I didn't bring along, so buy another)

There are so many ways to store your needles -- circular or otherwise:

I keep mine in their original packaging but it doesn’t work if I forget to put them back

Repeat..repeat! Just saying this has been talked to death...I work with mine coiled in easy. When finished, it goes back in it's package and filed by size in a large jar with it's new!

I bought two of those cloth needle holders. I have them hanging on my closet doors.
Also have straights in a box.
