I had some of that homespun left over from the earthy scarf and have been wanting to knit a pair of wrist warmers for me. So I decided to write my own pattern for some. These were pretty quick and easy to make since it's such a thick yarn. DH hates them, says that I look like a bag lady, not sure it it's the color or just the fingerless thing....
I'm posting the pattern free for others to use if they want, this is for personal or non-profit use only.
