Trixie's Handwarmers

Trixie's Fingerless Gloves Those of you who are fans of the show Deadwood, on HBO, may recognize these handwarmers from the Episode 33 "Amateur Night" when Trixie the Whore (come on, you know you wish that was your surname) was waiting outside the bank for Alma. Well, when I heard that MizM was going to be driving cross-country, stopping at various and sundry Deadwoodians hometowns for a visit, and that I was on her list, I started to ponder this design. I whipped out my Handy Book of Patterns and took the instructions for a glove, stopping at the knuckles instead of doing fingers. The yarn is Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran. I duplicate stitched the design on the top. Best I could figure out from the quick flashes you see of them on the screen. So now, my friend is MizM the Whore! (Come on, you know you wanna change your name.)
