I found a circular needled case at a craft fair which is really neat because it has clear pockets, but it only holds a half dozen circs. I'm wondering how those of you who have a large collection store them all.

Jane, I've got a case for circs. It matches one of my knitting bags. I still haven't organized them yet.I keep my in a Rubbermaid storgae box that keeps them pretty neat. It has a snap type lid on it. Then I have my Denise needles & those are just so easy to keep.

I use a totally simple method. I labeled ziploc gallon bags with sizes - I used a permanent marker -- one size per bag. The bag size is good because I take the needles out of the manufacturer's bag (which I keep in the bag because I sometimes use them when I have numerous needles in my current knitting tote) and the needles do not kink in a gallon bag. I keep the bags in a large clear box under my bed. It's easy to find my needles, new bags can be added as I buy new sizes, and DPN fit in the bags too.

I made my own organizer, similar to the ones that they sell for about $25 in yarn stores. It's made of fabric on a hanger, with horizontal section that the slide the needles through. They stay organized and unkinked. I marked each section with a permanent marker for the sz needle, and hung a needle sizer from a loop of yarn at the top.

Someone here told me about getting a plastic coupon organizer in a previous thread. I found one at a dollar store. It is opaque and larger than a checkbook. It has tabs with stickers I can use to label the slots. It works great and fits nicely in my storage bag.

A friend bought a circular needle storage case at Stitches West. I thought it was cool, but too small. I modified it and added pages. Love it!

I have all my circulars in one of my circular cases...see web site if interested. And my knit chek is right in the back pocket.
I like having them so compact.

mine are in a gallon freezer ziplock with a skacel needle gauge. the loose ones, anyway. one of the bamboo sets is in my backpack at all times. i am so afraid that armageddon might happen and i'll be separated from my knitting. then at least i can begin life over with something. i love the compact bamboo set, like a deck of cards!

I've been wondering what to do with mine too. I actually bought all the materials to sew my own holder, but after reading some of these posts, I may just try something else! Thanks for the ideas!

Thanks for all of the great ideas! After I posted that question I saw another post under "What's on your wish list" that had more ideas for storing circulars. Lots of great ideas - now how to decide which one to use!

I basically keep them in their packages in a tri-fold circ case...left side 12-16"; center section 24-29"; right section anything over 29". Within each section I have the packages inserted so that I can see the size...from Size 1 in the bottom pocket, on up in order...

Works for me-but you have to find the system that works for you!

We like to buy clementines in those wooden crates. I like to reuse things, so I have my circs in their original plastic packaging, standing up in the wooden clementine crate, separated by cardboard dividers by length.

Check out the Circular Solution--it hangs on a hanger and keeps the needles uncurled and organized. Works great!!

I also use the Bass Pro Shop Bait Binder. It has the zippered bag pages and works great.

There are a couple of bait binders that look like they would work.

The first one

The second one

I was going to look at a bunch of the pencil cases that go into binders, but they seemed expensive. The bait binder and pages leave much more money for needles and yarn.

It has a cloth cover and clear plastic pockets, velcroes closed and is very portable.
