I had the most rewarding experience.I contacted a nursing home by email to see if they were interested in knitted donations. I had shawls and the twiddlemuffs for their dementia residents. A very positive response.
When I dropped them off, she was happy with the shawls, but overjoyed with the twiddlemuffs. Tears filled her eyes, and mine. She hugged me twice and said she had never had twiddlemuffs before and felt they would be wonderful for them.
I am therefore going to make one for every person who would find comfort in them at her home. I will then contact another home to do the same.
My twiddlemuffs I am simply going to adorn with curlycues and knitted or crocheted flowers or hearts
Sewn on. Love the pocket idea too.
My cuffs, the inside part, are made with very soft chunky yarn so there is excess that they can grab onto if they want. Otherwise simply warm their fragile hands inside.
I use different colours on the outside, different techniques and stitches for their visual pleasure.
I love yours. What are the zig zag sts you use on the
Left hand side. Love that! Also the fun yarn on the right. What is it called and where did you get that?
I hope I have ans all your questions. I know most people add a lot of baubles, buttons,etc…I will do mine as mentioned. But I will ask them to let me know if it is enough and they are enjoyed. If not, will adjust from there.
Have fun! Such a worthy cause…the forgotten ones in many ways.
