Dialysis Sleeves

I've knitted and crocheted my fair share of mittens and wrist warmers, with and without patterns.  My hands get cold, so I insulate them with wool, easy right?  Now, my mom's on dialysis 5 days a week, and she says she gets cold, but I didn't really process how cold until I saw her hands shivering when it was in the high 70's/low 80's in the house.

So I put two and two together, and knit-crocheted (half knit, half crocheted=knitcheted?) her some wrist warmers.  "I love them," she told her Dialysis Nurse, and friend, when we went into the center today.  "They help so much."

Here's the sleeves in action

But if you have a local dialysis center, maybe look into making some fingerless gloves to donate.
