    I think the technique would be similar.....unless wool has to be knitted. Of that I ponder.....

    Ouch - better be more careful what I wish for! Seventy smackers... ughh

    Well thanks to all for really stepping up and shining the spotlight on the harder to find wristies of the world! Shug - I may order a pair of the power stretch wristies after I see how I like the fleece pair.

    As for the merino wool wristies... Maybe next Christmas or when I win the lotto (I guess I should start playing, huh?) As for now, I'll keep my eyes pealed for a pair in the $20-$30 range. Maybe Icebreaker/Minus33/Smartwool will come out with a decent pair.

    Maybe I can cut a large and small hole at the end of a pair of merino socks.

    I agree with HC, cut up some merino wool socks, a little stitching and you are good to go, hmmmmmmmm I have some time off, a little project might be fun.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.

    DIY Wristies from socks Pictures

    I was inspired by Shug to make these a few years ago! Works Great! These are cheap to make saving you $$$$! I used one pair of old socks and a old shoe string. I also use the toe end to store my batteries from getting cold? I think Shug is right about keeping the wrist warm and I also think keeping your neck warm is also important! Stay warm and toasty my friends!

    Now that's what I'm talking about! Bankheadboy, nice job. Looks like just a bit of hand sewing on edges. Bet there's a nice cost savings doing it the Bankheadboy way!
