Storing circular needles

What is the best way to store circular needles to avoid a tangled mess?

Hi, i had the same problem. I found a few solutions on Amazon that i liked. I did a search for “Circular Knitting Needle Storage” I bought one that hangs & has slots for the needles to slide through. They are marked 1-15 with 2 empty slots. I liked that one because of the way they hang in it, this way they aren’t kept in a small circle. Makes it easier to use them later. Good luck in your search.

Thanks for the reply. That hanging storage for circular needles sounds like just what I need! Going search on Amazon. Thanks again.

If they are single circulars (like not interchangeable) the hanging storage seems good unless you need to have them in a bag. Like this:

I use interchangables and use a case like this.

I saw it recommended somewhere, so I bought, a fishing rig wallet. They look a bit like a soft backed CD case, they have plastic zip lock clear inserts and Velcro fastening. I just put each needle into an insert and labelled it with the needle size and cable length. It didn’t cost much and does the job.

The make I bought was Zebco, medium size I think it is and around £5

Your welcome Molly426, I like that the hanging one helps straighten them out. I looked for quite some time before I decided on the hanging one. It’s under $20.00 & works great. I don’t like keeping them curled up

Molly haven’t been able to get online for awhile how is your search coming for a solution to circular needles? Did you find the one i recommended or go a different route?

Coil them the same way as flexible blocking wire.Before, my knitting needles were a mess I’m just got to make myself coil all of them up.

I have a lot of photography equipment lying around which includes a very big pile of sleeves for storing medium format film negatives - turns out they’re just right for storing circular knitting needles as well :joy: Each sleeve has four different compartments, and each compartment fits several sets of needles of the smaller sizes or one set of the bigger sizes - I write the size of the needles on the edge of the sleeve next to each compartment, and store the sleeves in a pile in a drawer. When I need a certain size it’s super easy to just flip through the pile and read the edges.
