Hello fellow makers! Kathleen here with our new and exciting DIY Friday blog series! DIY Friday highlights and showcases beautiful patterns to share and indulge in. For this Friday roundup, we're taking a look at 4 great wrist warmer patterns from four amazing maker shops! Ready to find a new weekend project? Lets go!
With the anticipation of fall at an all time high, what a perfect way to transition into the colder months ahead with a new pair of wrist warmers! Wrist warmers are a staple in my wardrobe in the early months of fall. There is something so special about slipping on a pair for the first time and celebrating the beginning of the cozy season.
Today we are highlighting Erin from The Mad Rabbit Shoppe (@themadrabbit), Tracey from Grizzlie (@grizzlieknits), Lisa from Tinker Creek Hand Knits (@tinkercreekhandknits), & my fellow dream teamer, the one and only Nathan from Loop'n Threads! (@loopnthreads)
