It's hard to imagine that you would ever need anything knitted and warm in Phoenix, Arizona, but we do have our own version of winter here (stop laughing, Minnesota). And since you might as well look cute and sparkly no matter what the temperature reads, these Sparkle Wrist Warmers will keep your fingers free for texting, shopping, taking photos, walking the dog or even knitting.
This is a fairly easy pattern requiring knitting in the round, the purl stitch and increasing by knitting in front and back of a stitch. Finished size is 7-1/2" in length and they fit most women. Plus, they're pretty quick to knit up and make great gifts wherever you live.
16-20 stitches for 4" stockinette

I come from a long line of crafters. My great-grandmother taught me to cross-stitch on gingham on her front porch when I was only 4. I did great until we realized I had sewn the fabric to my shorts. And my Mom has always been creative. She taught me to knit and sew. It's so satisfying to make something beautiful with your own two hands!
