Knitmore After Dark - Episode 561- The Knitmore Girls

Listen here:

This week's episode is sponsored by:
LoLo Body Care, formally Bar-Maids, creates exceptional moisturizers hand-poured by staff who add a good dose of heartfelt love to each one. Most all their supplies are made in the US, and their beeswax sourced from a local farm. Besides quality, the value of their product lies in that they last a very long time and are loved to the very last bit. They built their brand on being eco-friendly and their new packaging rocks. Their customers and customer service are rare and treasured jewels.
They only have one sale annually. It is their time to give back while supporting others to give more. Their annual sale begins Thanksgiving Day, noon and ends December 4th, noon.
