you know, I'd have to just stomp out the fire!! I have too much stash (both needlework and some knitting stash now) and there's no way I could pick!
So you could call me Smokey the Bear and I'd be using my big feet to stomp it out. LOL.

what needles would I grab first if there was a fire?
I just wanted to point out that this was the question...lest y'all think I'm awful for not mentioning going for my kids first...

I only have on pair that are irreplaceable. They are this huge honkin size a billion (I really have no idea higher than teens) wooden needles that my mom got when we lived in Spain. I can remember her making an afghan for my brother on them. I can replace everything else, but those needles and they don't fit in my needle case, so I couldn't just grab the case and run. The hardest thing for me would be all my WIP's because they are all in different bags scattered around the house. I can replace yarn, needles, stitch markers, etc. But not the time I have already spent knitting. That is truly irreplaceable!

I think I'd be more likely to go save some of my yarn than worry about my needles. I love my denises, but it's not like they're discontinued or anything...easier to replace

I would leave it all in there and have a great time buying all new yarn and needles with the insurance money.

It used to be that I would grab my Inox & Susan Bates Quicksilver (I do still love & use them)...BUT...that was before I found a reasonable source for addi's and have been collecting them...SO. I would grab my addi's...well, and my Denise's bc u can use them for so much...and I really need the Quicksilvers bc I have all sizes and I must have all of my dpns for socks and my single point Boyes are sentimental bc I learned to knit with them. Then there are all of the other circs that I will need for sweater knitting..... :thinking: I WOULD GRAB MY HUSBAND & ANIMALS, we would all be dead if I had to decide which needles

I'm with Yarnmommy. I'd tell the insurance company about how I had Addis of every size and length, about the beautiful rosewood straights, and about the luxury yarn stash that burned up tragically. :( If they find a blob of melted acrylic, I'd just say it was one of the kids' toys.
