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.
Thanks Jan! Those are nice. I think I need the hanging one.
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.
What a great idea!! Thanks!
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 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.
Hey. This is a good idea! Thanks!!
