I just received my new Knitpicks Options interchangeable needle set.  Since I haven't had a chance to use them yet, I can't give any kind of review about the needles, but I wasn't thrilled with the unlabeled needles and storage pouch.  I'm sure I would get different needle sizes mixed up and don't want to use a needle gauge everytime I switch sizes.  So I came up with a solution.  It's really simple, but I figured that other Knitpicks users might appreciate the idea. 
For those unfamiliar with the plastic pouch, info can be found on the Knit Picks website, here: http://www.knitpicks.com/Options+Interchangeable+Circular+Knitting+Needle+Case_ND80403.html
My solution:



I used lavender cardstock cut to fit the pouches (approx 3" tall by 1.25" wide) and hand-stamped the sizes in fuschia ink using little alphabet stamps found in the dollar section at JoAnn Fabrics.  I had planned to simply stamp the size numbers, but didn't have any numbered stamps.  So I spelled out the numbers instead and thought it turned out pretty cute and very practical.  The purple and pink go quite well with the purple needle cables, and the pouch is really pretty great for holding the rest of my non-interchangeable circular needle collection.

Thanks for looking!

Oh that is a good idea I just keep measuring mine when I use them.  I love those needles though I'm sure you will love them too. Watch out if you get the dpns they are sharp. I have punctured my hand and foot with them. But I still use them because they are awesome.
