This is Len's first try at an instructional video:
<video width="640" height="480">
<source src="http://www.ovenwerks.net/sockglove.webm" type="video/x-webm"></source>
</video>

I don't do youtube so lets see if it works. Try the link below, there doesn't seem to be any way to link a webm video:
Video on socks into gloves

gloves don't work for me. No one seems to make them big enough (one size fits all fits no one) or maybe they have never been tested for hours at a time rather than long enough to get into the car. I work outside and need my fingers to manipulate things a lot. I have tried various solutions with some fingerless gloves made for weightlifting being the best premade solution. Finally I tried just cutting some socks off and using the cuffs. It worked much better than I had imagined. The video is a more finished version.

 
I found a beautiful pie. And a tiny ad:
