Swiper Fingerless Mitts
Fingerless mitts are a must-have for a mobile maker! After all, you can’t have impeded digits while trying to text someone else’s. Nor can your fingers be confined while you’re crafting — or Instagramming pics of — your latest project! No worries, though, I’ve got you covered with these textured stitch wrist warmers. Oh, and while we’re talking texting and posting, Visible (the new app-based cell service on the Verizon Network) also has you covered by offering an unlimited talk, text, and data plan for a flat $ 40/month! Both my mitts and their service are perfect for small business owners, college-bound peeps, teenagers, and anyone whose life and work are cell-bound. I’ll keep you cozy, they’ll keep it cost effective!
Currently Visible is only available by invitation. Consider this yours! Download the app and use code: FEB13 to check it out!
