Has anyone seen/come up with a case to hold just dpns? I kinda have an idea for what I wanna make (sort of like a zippered crochet hook case) but I was wondering if any were already somewhere out there.
I'm just tired of my needle roll not keeping my needles together (they fall out, get mixed together).

Nope that's a needle roll case and I was looking for one like the crochet case with maybe elastic bands for holding down the needles.

The roll looks great but I have 12 now and if I'm not careful when I take it places the sock needles slide out at get mixed up (the damn things are so hard to figure the sizes on when they get mixed together).  Oh also has anyone seen a needle gauge that goes down to sock size and steel hook size? The hooks at least have the # stamped into them put the needles don't

It's not what you're looking for, but it might give you some ideas -- I like how the pockets are scaled to the size that lets 5 DPNs fit into each:

I don't know that you could hold down 5 or 6 DPNs of a set with a piece of elastic -- wouldn't it get stretched out too far?

I am in the process of making new needle roll cases for myself- one for my 10" needles, one for my 14" needles, and one for my DPNs.  My DPN case will have a pocket for each size and they will have a fold over top that snaps to keep the needles in their pocket.  My current 14" needle case uses elastic and yes, the elastic stretches and if it isn't sized just right, it doesn't do a nice job of holding things in.  Let me know if you guys want to see pictures...especially since I'm not sure how well I explained this! lol

the snap closed pocket sounds like a good idea
