This craft tip is for storing knitting or crochet needles. Using fish aquarium tubing, which is very inexpensive and comes in various diameters, I cut just about an inch or so, pushing it down a bit (so they don't slide off) but yet long enough to cover the tips of the needles.
This works especially well for traveling or even to keep the needle inside the ball of yarn for the project you are working on thus not having to worry about misplacing the needle or the hook catching on the yarn or anything else. I have been doing this for over 45 yrs.
