Do you know about  Lo-Lo EO's?  EO's (essential oils) are natural compounds derived from plants, that have powerful biochemical compositions which often stimulate our brain, affecting mood and well being.  Like you and me,  Lo-Lo EO’s are a wondrous mixture of individual qualities, some very bold and assertive, others showing a softer, gentler face.  By applying specific EO’s or blends, you choose  the way want your mood affected.  When EO’s are combined with Bar-Maids soothing combination of  natural oils and butters, you have an amazing Lo-Lo experience. EO’s are powerful, and respecting them is appropriate. With that in  mind, do you want to relax, rejuvenate, or recharge? It's all up to you. Lo-Lo EO’s are available in the Body Bar, To-Go Bar, O’ for Feet Sake, and Lip Balm, and Cuticle Intensive.

On The Needles:(0:32)

This week, Gigi is working on Vanilla Socks for Grandpa Knitmore, and a vanilla-fied version of the Firestarter Socks in the Opal Vincent Van Gogh colorways. Jasmin is working on the Eadon and making progress.

Gigi is getting close to binding off at the Ginko Crescent shawl. She has gotten to the bind-off on the Celeano that she is knitting out of Lisa Sousa yarn. Jasmin finished the button side of the Antler cardigan out of Greenland.

Gigi has now cast on all the socks out of the Knitters Curiosity Cabinet. Jasmin cast on the Fiery Bolero by Debbie Bliss out of Panda cotton to go with her summer dresses. And she is working on her Boneyard shawl. She is looking for the next baby sweater to knit for Genevieve, and is looking for suggestions.


We will be attending Wine and Wool, at the Retzlaff Winery, on Saturday, May 25th, in Livermore. This falls on the Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend.
