How cute is this Woolly Mittens Puzzle? Look at the really cute designs. I remember one time many years ago I learned how to make mittens. I could never make mittens that look like these though. Have you ever made mittens like these? I suppose I could try to re-learn how to but I would much rather enjoy assembling the puzzle instead. However, I especially like the white mittens with the holly on them....maybe a Christmas wish.

Woolly Mittens Puzzle Assembly

I did not do my usual sorting with this one due to it being a Family Puzzle. In a Family jigsaw puzzle the pieces are in roughly 3 different sizes so I sorted 4 piles. Small, medium, large and border pieces.

The border was fairly easy with all the pieces being extra large. My plan for this one was to work the most obvious Mitten colors starting with the 2 green pairs, then brown pairs, then cream colored pairs, snowflakes, Reindeers and Santa faces.

The red checkered pair of mittens was the toughest area and also the one with the majority of smaller pieces as was the strings.

Woolly Mittens Puzzle Comments...

The extra shiny finish on the Woolly Mittens puzzle made it tricky to get good photos without the glare. With the pieces being so large some tend to curl slightly from use (one hopes) but they are firm. The pieces do not lay flat and were cut loose, again one hopes from use. Being a Hallmark brand, the box is of extremely high quality being very firm.

I have also had the pleasure of assembling the Hallmark Keepsake Christmas Ornaments which is quite lovely too. And by the way... Hallmark still sells jigsaw puzzles.

In this case the price was 50 cents due to the Christmas clearance of 75% off at the Thrift Store making it difficult to resist. It certainly qualifies for recommendation as a Family puzzle because of the variety of piece sizes and the image is attractive. I am pleased all the pieces are available which is always like a little bonus.  Which is your favourite mitten set?
