Rise & Shine Arm Warmers

Knit these fun arm warmers using Shimmer yarn which combines beautiful rich solid shades with a matching thread of metallic to give it just a hint of sparkle. The metallic wrap adds sparkle to the yarn yet does not take away from the wonderfully soft hand and it’s perfect for knitting.
