I go to the CWA meetings locally…well it was local until we moved and now its three bus rides away, but I still go.
I made this Twiddle Muff for them. They are donated for dementia sufferers to use…
I can not afford to give heaps of money but I can give this way. Hopefully someone will benefit from it….
My aim was a muff for a man… a male dementia suffer should not suffer the indignity of using a pink and purple fluff muff if he doesn’t want to. I kept the pinks and purples for inside the muff.
The outside of the muff has buttons that rattle and have texture. circles that can be moved along a string. A chain that is secured with a shoe lace that can be undone at will. The crocheted spheres with holes int he top are for putting fingers in or out of …
Inside the muff is one colour opposed to the many colours on the outside. I have put in beads to fiddle with and a piece of rope to play with also some fluffy strands of crochet. The pocket is purple… hang head in shame but it is inside and I got carried away… The buttons rattle.
I am pretty certain someone will add more to my first attempt at a twiddle muff to make it more interesting and exciting but here it is my first attempt.
I think time I will just stick to beanies for cancer sufferers…
