Favorite needles?
I was talking to a friend who has an interesting story about how she came to own her favorite pair of needles and it got me thinking...what needles would I grab first if there was a fire? Which ones would be irreplaceable?

I would pick the silly blue size 11 plastic needles that I ran across in a $1 bin at Joanns. They were an impulse buy, and the best one by far!

What about ya'll?

I have a little Sterilite bin with aaaaall of my needles in it. If I had to choose, of course I'd save the Addis first...but I'd prefer to grab the whole bin. :D

All of my straights are in my Jordana Paige Needle case that I won during KH's 1st anniversary last month, so I could easily grab that. And all that is in the same room as my two bins of yarn and my Denises, so really, I'd try to grab those too. :D

But my kitty cat would be first tho - altho she could easily fit into one of those bins, so I wouldn't lose her... :thinking:

After I got my kids out, I would grab my yarn bins. If I could run back in after that, I would grab my denise needles.

Favorite Needles
In my right hand: My sentimental favorite would be the big plastic size 10 needles I got as part of a Spinnerin Learn to Knit kit I got as a kid.

My Denise needles would be in my left!

(Hubby, son, cats, baby pictures balanced on my head...)
