I had never heard of a Twiddlemuff until the other day and the more I read about them the more I knew I had to knit one.
As the write up says in the link above:
"Twiddlemuffs are knitted muffs with interesting bits and bobs attached. Many patients with Alzheimer’s, arthritis and dementia find them comforting and therapeutic as they help encourage movement and brain stimulation"
What an interesting idea and such a simple one. So I have decided to knit one for my step-father. As he gets older his hands are always cold and getting arthritic.
I had some pale green and lemon yarn leftover. So I am knitting the inside of the muff with that. This is a great way to use up leftover yarn.
Have you heard of a twiddlemuff before?
