Sometimes it’s good to do something just because you want to. And so, this week, I put aside sofa covers, slippers and string bags and made something that I saw a while ago and simply wanted to have a go at, namely an Amish Puzzle Ball:

It’s lovely and tactile, but has no particular use. I have given it to Mr Snail to have on his desk… and possibly throw at his computer when he’s having a frustrating day!

If you want to make one of your own, the pattern is available free on Ravelry. I made mine with Paton’s mercerised DK cotton and a 3.5mm hook.
