Hi All. Welcome to Jumbled Crafts and Thank you for dropping by. This is a scheduled post as I will be away when it is published. I will try to get around your blogs as always but not sure if I will have wifi where we are staying.
Today we have the start of a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday and as always it will last for 2 weeks and you can make anything at all so long as it follows the challenge theme. I hope you will call in the TIOT blog and see the great ideas the rest of the team have had to help inspire you.
This is what I have made--they are called Twiddle muffs and I make them for dementia patients. I found the pattern here and have made about 20 so far. I saw some of them in use when I took them to the care home where my mother-in-law stayed to get better. They really do work. The patients play with the textures of the wool and the things that are stitched onto the outside and the inside. They are allowed to keep them as their own.
I am kept well stocked with leftovers as people give me wool and bits and bobs to stitch on. I have even taught some others to knit them as they are so easy to make.
Hope you will join in with us for this challenge
Love Chrissie xx
