I didn't know where to put this so I am sorry if it is in the wrong place...

I have been struggling with my circular needles to keep them organized and I really dislike the plastic case the KnitPicks interchangeables come in.  So, after some thought, here is what I came up with...

There is a little case for each size needle I have:

and they are all on a little loop so I can hang it in the closet:

My circulars fit inside perfectly and my needle tips too!

And I left one blank for my cords and needle sizer thingie:

Yay for being organized!

 Smiley This is a great Idea. I also love the fabric, so pretty. Is this your own pattern?

Thanks!  I adore those fabrics as well so I knew I had to make myself something with them Smiley

Yup, my own pattern although it is pretty simple.
