2. What do you use to store your needles/hooks in?

3. How long have you been knitting & how did you learn? Would you consider your skill level to be beginner, intermediate or advanced?
I've been knitting now for about three years. I'm on the upper end of intermediate knitting (depending on the project) I don't have any trouble reading patterns or the majority of my knitting. I'm still really gun shy on finishing though. Read too many horror stories about how everything was wonderful then the finish work was sloppy. So a little paranoid in that department.
