|Roll Up! Roll Up!|
The obvious thing to do was to start with the closed loop, I then placed the piece in the bottom right of the photo (it only fits in one place. Next I tried to place the other large piece and couldn't so had to change my order. This requires a very accurate set of moves but they all work very well. When I got to the very last piece it seemed that there was a small bit left over! Only after carefully looking inside did I see a small hole - changing the order of the last 2 pieces allowed me to complete it:
I can see why Richard is so proud of it. It is much harder when they arrive disassembled - I think I will take these to the Midlands puzzle party like this.
The next puzzle from Richard that I attempted was Twist the Night Away. This is a 6 piece, 6 colour puzzle which I ordered fully assembled. When you first pick it up it is very attractively dyed, it is also very light. The pieces are fairly loose but it doesn't fall apart on you. I did wonder why this one was made looser than the others and the reason will be revealed later.
