For the bargain price of £3.89 including postage, I have bought Pickle 4 pairs of magic mittens, from someone on Ebay, not for those cold winter days at school, but to wear in bed.
Yes, Pickle is a twiddler. A hair twiddler. She will twiddle day and night if given half a chance. About a year ago, before the night mittens, the left side of her hair was so much shorter then the right side and had bald patches in.
She twiddles the hair into such a fine, tight knot, gets her finger stuck, then......PULLS the finger out taking the knot with it.
She wears the mittens at night, as they are more effective than gloves.
Does anyone have any ideas as how I can stop Pickle twiddling? It had started to grow back, but the twiddling is returning.
She is happy during the day and seems to twiddle to relax rather than be worried about anything.
