Thanks Jan! I love puzzles, I think for the same reason I like the process of knitting.
I just may need to order a few of those, one for me, one for a friend, one for my mom, one for my grandma.... :blooby:
there goes my paycheck!:roflhard:

Jan, the images used for those puzzles reminded me of a video I stumbled upon way back when I had just started to look for knitting help on the internet.

The title of the video was "KNITTING PORN" but all it was was a bare hand reaching into a bag full of balls of yarn.

You ladies and your strange, strange facinations... :roll:

Those look like fun, Demonica! Our favorite seem to be the ones like this http://www.puzzlewarehouse.com/Friday-The-13th-0981jum.html, but we like them all except the ones that are so hard they really aren't fun... you know the ones that are nearly all one or two colors. :doh:

I love jigsaw puzzles. I used to put them together all the time, but the cats I have now are not well behaved enough for me to do it anymore. I used to have an elderly cat who would sit in my lap while I work them, but she's no longer with us. She was so good to keep her paws off, but these youngsters aren't so much.

Aw, that's awesome!

Yeah, if a puzzle is any less than 1000 pieces, I won't touch it...lol...It's gotta be somewhat of a challenge!

Yep, all our puzzles are 1000 pieces.

Oh, I have a 3D puzzle of Notre Dame (http://www.amazon.com/Hasbro-49740-Puzz-Notre-Dame/dp/B0007Q1IR6).

But I also have several sizes of Rubik's cubes. 3 cubed, 4 cubed, and 5 cubed. My children challenge me by doing a requested number of moves then handing them to me to see if I can reverse them or if I have to solve the whole cube. :)

I have a few Charles Wysocki puzzles, in the Americana series.

I prefer the bigger ones, too. The one we have now was given to us by a 12 yr old for Christmas. It's hard! We have most of the outside edge done so onto the really hard part... Eek.

Holy cow!
I usually just get the Thomas Kinkade puzzles, Target has them whenever I'm in the mood. I have to remember to order these ones though!

ME TOO! :cheering:

Funny Story..... In a round-about way, doing puzzles on-line is what led me to this web-site. I was doing puzzles late one night and they had a link to a puzzle embeded into somebody's blog and it was a knitting project (I don't remember what). I followed the link to do the puzzle, started reading the blog and her knitting adventures/projects and ended up following it to someone else's blog (listed on her "other sites I follow" I think)...then another one and (not sure how many links it took) ... ended up here! :woot:

I wish I could remember who's blog it was so I could thank them!

When I was growing up, my Mom and a few of my sisters used to do them all the time. We would start one on our card table and just move it into a corner till it was done. I used to get in trouble for trying to sneak in a few pieces when I was supposed to be doing housework or going to bed. :roflhard:

Here's the link http://www.jigzone.com/.... ENJOY:wink:
