C'est finalement fini.

Here is my Hook Roll.  I used a free pattern from Berroco, which can be found here:http://www.berroco.com/exclusives/kluster/kluster.html
There is also a version for knitters which holds knitting needles of course.  I used TLC essentials in Dusky for the cluster in the center.  It isn't wool, I just thought acrylic might hold up better to me pulling hooks in and out.  The felted portion is Lion Brand Wool Yarn in Dark Teal. It is 100% wool, thus great for felting.  I felted the piece in the washer inside a mesh intimates wash bag.

Here it is all rolled up.  I love the button!  This is a more accurate picture of the color.

...and here it is unrolled.  The varigated is darker than in the photo.

It won't hold my really big hooks (L, P, etc.), but it will work for most others although I don't know about thread hooks.

Wow, that turned out very lovely. I love the colour choice, and the pretty button.

Now I've been meaning to make one of these myself, but I have a query-
If you were to crochet one end of the hook-holding part with a smaller hook, then the middle section with the normal size hook, and the other end section with a larger hook, do you think that the roll would be able to hold thread hooks, 'normal size' hooks, and your P's and Q's?

I like personal swaps <3

...Oh fine!

That's a great Idea...I think it would work really well.  Also, the cluster is just sewn on, so when it wears out or isn't what you need anymore I think it would be relatively replaceable.
