I knitted!

Towards the end of last year I started going to the local library on a Thursday afternoon for a craft group.  Most of them are knitters but I take along my beading however early in Jan we had a visitor from a localish charity (whose name escapes me) that makes tweedle muffs, bags etc for dementia patients.   They had recently come up with an idea for a canula sleeve to help stop those with dementia pulling them out all the time and where asking for people to knit them.

So me with my limited knitting skills decided that even I could manage one so I did with the aid of a book for more than the basic stitches.

The inside of it is done in plain stocking or garter stitch in whatever colour you like I used a white and a mutli colour and did garter stitch



Then came the outside and apart from moss stitch, rib and basic stitches I can't remember what I did! 


I hate stitching knitting together with a passion (one reason I don't really do anything other than socks) so one of the other group members is going to do that bit for me on this one and any others I manage to produce.
I did however make a slight boo boo with it in that it's supposed to be in one long piece not 2 like mine is but that can be fixed :)

These are such a great idea, nice and soft too.

Well done Lindsay. Local ladies here have made lots of the twiddle muffs and cuffs.
