Twiddle Mitts


These are knitted mitts which can be used to cover canulas (drain tubes, etc) so the patient is not pulling on it but twiddling with the mitt instead. They are also great as a distraction for dementia patients who often like to twiddle with things. 
Anything can be attached: buttons, bells, beads, keys, small teddies as long as they are attached securely. 
The pattern can be downloaded from the bottom of this page. 

5,000 poppies for Anzac Day 2015: Melbourne

 

Clearly a lot more than 5000, over 250,000 in fact.
