Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

We have a couple of Amish country stores in our area, and Ive seen the fabric versions of these toys. Being somewhat mechanically minded, Ive always been curious about how the pieces fitted together. This designer almost takes an assembly line approach, and offers a wealth of photos for virtually every step of the process. Its not hard, but is fiddly. I really appreciate that she uses completely different colored yarn for each circle. It makes it much easier to keep track.

Whoa! How cool is this!? I want one! lol #bestideaever
