My first C2C twiddlemuff

When I learn a new technique I tend to try it out in lots of different ways and so, following on from my Corner to Corner scarves, I have now made a C2C twiddlemuff:

The beads were a suggestion from a friend, and definitely increase the twiddling potential!

Made in Drops Puna light grey and dark grey, Wendy Ramsdale dk Malton and King Cole baby alpaca dk mauve, on a 4.5mm hook.

      They are primarily for people with dementia, but some hospitals use them for post-operative patients too, to give them something to do with their hands (other than interfere with dressings etc.)
      They are also a great way of using up the tiniest bits and bobs of stash.

        I see – my father in law was given what must be called a ‘twiddlecushion’ then! Great idea and his was personalised with a music theme to echo his tuba playing past.

        I believe people make twiddle quilts too – sort of lap quilts with extra bits added. I would be interested to know if people have relatives who have used something like a twiddlemuff and felt that it made a difference….

      Twiddlemuffs are tubular double thickness hand muffs with tactile objects attached inside and out.
      They are designed to provide stimulation activity for patients suffering from dementia, and patients in post-operative recovery, and they are ‘wanted’ by several charities including Knit for Peace..
      I have made quite a few (see HERE)
