Yeah – Knock Knock – 500 pieces

Please forgive the angle of this picture, I tried to go back and fix it but the stupid photo program wouldn’t let me change anything after I’d renamed it. Stupid technology. 🤐

This was much more challenging than the previous four letter puzzle that I assembled. The shading at the back made for odd shapes, and my brain took quite a long time to wrap itself around the concept. But I loved that about it; when you know the solution is right in front of you and all you have to do is SEE it. You just have to let your brain catch up and figure it out. And then, when you finally do get it, the exhilaration is fantastic! (My PADS posse understands, don’t you?)

A friend says I should have left the other puzzle assembled and then taken a picture of “S**t Yeah!”. Why didn’t I think of that? I was moving the letters around to spell other words, and was thinking that I’m only one letter short of being able to spell my name; if I had gotten the other naughty word or even the word Crap I’d have the C so I could spell out my name in pretty letters. Ah well, I missed my chance.

This puzzle was very good quality, just like the first one. I’m quite impressed with them, especially because the company doesn’t only do puzzles. In fact, these four letter words are the only puzzles they carry. To get such good quality is a surprise, a very pleasant one. Check them out at Knock Knock.

I’ve enjoyed assembling these words/letters, and I think any of the others would be very entertaining. If you’re looking for a silly, challenging, enjoyable puzzle, I would absolutely recommend these four letter words.

S**t Yeah! 😉

YEAH In Progress

Yeah IP

YEAH is finally back in progress. I started it at the beginning of the week, but trying to assemble all the edges first through the fog of some serious pain medications was just too much for this poor old lady’s aging brain.

Luckily, though I’m still peering through the fog, it finally came to me this morning to try to assemble each letter separately and stop trying to make this puzzle conform to how I usually do things. Normally the edge is where most puzzles begin, but this puzzle is a rebel and doesn’t wish to fit into any boxes of how a puzzle is supposed to be. Stop trying to change her! Just let her be herself!

*Now that I think about it, this medication may be just a bit TOO strong. 🥴

Ok, back to the puzzle. Once the decision was made to assemble it letter by letter the progress is going along much more quickly. THIS (or the other spelling) was a 400 piece puzzle, YEAH is 500 pieces; so it may take me a little longer. But who knows? One letter at a time seems to be speeding up the process, so perhaps it’ll be done sooner than you think.

Enjoy your Friday everyone, and happy puzzling! 🧩

“This” and Other Spellings

“This” (and other spellings) – Knock Knock – 400 pieces

I specifically bought this “word” because I would be able to spell something G-rated with it for the blog. My Jigsaw Journal is about jigsaw puzzles first and foremost, and in a smaller sense it’s about me too. This is the perfect puzzle to show both sides of the blog: the strictly jigsaw puzzle side is “This” and the part about me is the other, more R-rated word “S**t”. (Although I don’t consider it that bad of a swear word to be honest, but some people might and I don’t want to offend anyone.)

Since the naughtier word is the one actually shown on the box, I will show the letters arranged in the correct order. This is just a warning for those of you who might not want to see it, at the bottom of the post I will put a bit of empty space and then the picture. I wanted to give you a heads up, if you’re not interested, stop reading once you see the empty space. 😉

Usually when I get a puzzle from a company that makes many other products the puzzles are quite poor in quality. This Knock Knock puzzle though had wonderful quality; the pieces are a good thickness, the fit was very nice, and the image reproduction is excellent with beautiful colors and gold foil. It’s only the first puzzle from this brand that I’ve done, but I’m quite impressed with it and hope that the second puzzle I purchased is similar in quality. Their line of Four-letter puzzles isn’t all cuss words, they also have the words Sexy, Love, Yeah, and Crap. There are only two actual swear words. My second puzzle is Yeah, and I’m looking forward to it!

As my puzzle friend Penny described it when I sent her a picture – it looks like 70’s disco. I didn’t make that connection when I was assembling it, but she’s right, it absolutely looks like a disco puzzle…

I loved both the quality and the puzzle in general. Since all the letters had the same colors, it was quite difficult at the start. All these similar pieces, where to begin? I started with the S because I could see where the colors bent. Then I focused on the white stripe that runs through each letter, and I could see it curved in the S and where they met in the H and the T. Once I got going it became easier to see what I should be looking for, and it took a bit of sorting to see which bits went with which letter, it stayed difficult till the end. If you’re planning on assembling this, be prepared – it’s pretty challenging!

All in all I’m quite pleased with this purchase. I hadn’t bought any puzzles online since around April until this one. The quality is very good, the puzzle itself makes me smile, and I’m pretty darned proud of myself for getting it assembled. I’m very much looking forward to putting the next one together, I bought YEAH because I loved the colors and the way the letters looked. All the Four-letter puzzles they have are different in color and shape, and I’m hoping the next word is as entertaining as this one was. 🙂

Empty space coming up, don’t go any farther if you don’t want to see the swear word. For the rest of you guys, meet you at the bottom of the post!











It’s just funny to see this word spelled out with a puzzle. I love it! There was a naughtier word available, THE naughtiest word actually; but you can’t spell anything other words with it. I just adore this puzzle, it was very naughty fun! 😈
