comment Is it safe to put insulation next to knob & tube wiring?
Except in four western USA States: CA, OR, WA and ID, where insulation is legal after inspection. Remember that K&T with the proper fuse is equal to or better to modern wire in terms of heat dissipation. See diy.stackexchange.com/a/40489/5960 .

comment Is it safe to put insulation next to knob & tube wiring?
No sarcasm. K&T does not even need the insulation to perform, where NM cable depends on it. The K&T I happily leave in place is generally inside walls and closed ceilings where it will cause no harm, insulation or not. For where it goes into a junction box I slip new loam or shrink tube over it, and problem is solved.
