Bar-Maids - Lo-Lo Body Bar
Love the fragrance 5 out of 5
Gave these to some fellow committee members. They liked the fragrance and the bar. What I like about all the fragrances is that they smell wonderful but are subtle.

Bar-Maids - Lo-Lo Body Bar
Love Lo-Lo Bars 5 out of 5
Bought the Plain Jane for my husband to keep in the car. His hands become dry with the winter weather. He frequently travels to cold, dry areas so this is perfect.

Bar-Maids - Lo-Lo To-Go
Best there is!! 5 out of 5
Love the fragrance but the best thing is the way it works. My hands were so dry being up in dry mountain air. Used this several times during the day. My skin just soaked it up leaving my hands well moisturized without a residue to get on clothes or knitting! I'm buying some as gifts.

Knitting Fever - Flounce Metallic
Flounce yarn ruffle scarf 4 out of 5
Just finished my second scarf with the Flounce red and black yarn. Knitted on size 10 US needles with stitches spaced about every 3/4" - 1", seven cast on stitches. Looks fabulous and ruffles fall nicely. Fully opened the tape of yarn about a yard before knitting and kept doing this the whole skein. First scarf knit on size 7 US needles with spacing the same and nine cast on stitches. The scarf looks too wide and ruffles do not fall nicely.

Crystal Palace - Panda Cotton
So nice to work with 5 out of 5
The feel of this yarn is such a pleasure.  It is smooth, knits quickly.  I'm using it for socks.  Just be careful of splitting the yarn.  Love that this has bamboo and cotton.

Lantern Moon - Blonde Wood Sox Stix
An alternative to the Blue Sky 5 out of 5
I purchased these needles because they wood is a light color and I am making black socks.  The 6" length is perfect, the yarn moves along the needles very nicely.  These needles are a huge improvement to bamboo or other wood needles and definitely worth the price.  If there is a negative it is the little bag the needles are packaged in.  It is very cute but not at all protective for the fine needles.  I may just put them in the Blue Sky metal case that my other DPN are in.

Blue Sky Alpacas - Wooden Double Points
Wonderful to work with 5 out of 5
I have always preferred bamboo needles previously for my sock knitting.  Well, after knitting quite a few socks and deciding this is one of my favorite things to make, it was time to have some really good needles so I purchased a set of size "0".  The Blue Sky Double Pointed Needles are wonderful.  The yarn slides very nicely and the needles are sturdy.  The 6" length is my preference for socks.  A great plus is the little metal case they come in for storage.  A negative......one of my needles broke while in my project bag.  Some kind of pressure must have been put on it.  Definitely a risk with size "0".  And the needles only come in dark wood which makes working on dark yarn a big challenge. But I love these needles.

Knitting Pure and Simple - Baby & Children Patterns
Truly simple 5 out of 5
Like Diane's other patterns this one is very simple and looks great.  The look varies with the yarn used.  It knits up quickly, fits well, can be altered easily.  Love it.....pure and simple.

Lorna's Laces - Shepherd Sock
Lorna's Laces Sock Yarn 5 out of 5
I used the Sock Yarn iin "Parfait" and the Knitting Pure and Simple pattern for a pair of women's socks for my daughter.  It was fast and simple.  Lorna's Laces yarns are my very favorite wool to work with and to wear.
