Staff and carers are busy knitting ‘twiddlemuffs’ to sell at the Falkirk Charities Day on Saturday 19 August.
A twiddlemuff is a double thickness knitted muff with bits and bobs attached inside and out. It provides a wonderful source of visual, tactile and sensory stimulation. At the same time it keeps hands snug and warm or it can be used on the arm to cover cannulas and stop people with dementia pulling them out.
We thought it might be more fun to meet together and have a tea or coffee and a blether as we knit. Sessions will be held at the Centre in Falkirk on Tuesdays 1, 8 and 15 August, 6 pm – 9 pm. Come for as long or short as you want. We can provide knitting needles, wool and items to sew onto the muffs.
Why not come and join us?
