Twiddlemuffs sent in by one of our lovely volunteer knitters. Inspiration for our Voluntary Arts Week challenge - knit a twiddlemuff - send it to us at Knit for Peace and we'll send it out to a hospital for a dementia patient with restless hands. More information and a pattern on our website: http://www.knitforpeace.org.uk/category/blog/

The vestibular system should not be ruled out as a source of these symptoms. - See more at: http://vestibular.org/node/10#sthash.PTG9Zsz1.dpuf
