Brightwell WI knitters are making ‘Twiddlemuffs’ in response to OFWI’s challenge. These are knitted hand muffs with interesting bits and bobs attached. Designed to provide stimulation, they also provide something to soothe restless hands and minimise agitation. They will be distributed during Dementia Awareness Week , in May, to Hospitals, Care Homes and Day Centres in Oxfordshire.
At last week’s knitting group meeting, Anne Brooker handed out kits made from her stash of interesting yarns to get people started.
And here’s a copy of the pattern: Twiddle-muff pattern
