Whilst perusing Facebook I came across some information about the use of Twiddlemuffs for people who suffer from dementia.
My mother has this awful disease so I decided to make one for her to try out and I'm pleased to say that she loves it and calls it her 'comforter'
It is knitted by using 2 strands of double knitting wool on size 10 needles
I followed a pattern I found online at The Yarn Loop
It's a free pattern and you can find it here
And I also made a spare...just in case
They are easy-peasy to make and bring such comfort.
Well worth having a go at making one
