So many of the devices in and around our homes are going with a touchscreen interface. It's easy to use, endlessly customizable and just plain cool to play with! Too bad they're useless in the cold months when you've got gloves on.

Ever since the first-generation iPhone hit the market, we've seen pre-fab touchscreen-friendly gloves. Check out this fingerless pair from Freehands, this e-tipped pair from The North Face and these $10 "Dots" knit gloves, for reference.

But this is the first time we've seen online instructions that teach you how to make your own gloves touch-screen compatible with just a few stitches.

Touchscreens work by responding to a conductive material, like your skin. When fabric gets in the way, your screen won't register the touch. But if you sew a conductive thread (yes, they sell this—grab 10 feet on a bobbin for $3.95) into your glove so it touches both your skin and the screen, any pair of mittens can be trained to be a stylus!

That's really all you need to know, but if you're a step-by-step kinda person, check out these directions at Instructables.
