Use plastic page protectors for storage if you have a lot of needles. Plastic page protectors, like the kinds used for reports, are perfect for keeping your circular needles organized. You can then keep the protectors in a 3-ring binder. Mark the size of the needles on the plastic to help keep track of them.
How do you store interchangeable needles?
I use two-gallon Ziplock storage bags. All needles of one size fit in one bag, circular, straight and Double points. I just mark the bag with the size, stack them on a shelf and there they are. If you’re working on a project, the yarn and pattern usually fit inside this bag too.
How do you store your knitting?
2 – Use a Needle Roll.
These fabric organizers have separate pockets to store your needles. Keeping them separate stops them from rubbing on each other. You simply roll up your organized needles and tie up the ribbon around the outside. Perfect for knitting on the go as it fits in your project bag or tote.
How long do knitting needles last?
Good quality bamboo and wooden knitting needles can last for many years, especially those with a larger diameter (4mm+, US size 6+). Long straight knitting needles are particularly durable. Bamboo and wooden needles are more fragile than metal though.
