    They're pretty simple to make. Or check out Wristies.

    I'll second AS on the Wristies ... good product and work well. But that said, they're easy to make.

    My simplistic little self just cuts the toes off an old pair of socks and a hole in the heel for my thumb. I have unsophisticated but very functional wristies. I really like rag wool for this. I wear them all winter, when really cold, I pull a pair of mittens over them. My favorite item to wear ice fishing.
    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.

    Same here. Mine are made out of socks. Here's post and pictures on that. I'm still using this same set.
