If you're just starting out, you might try working on Hardanger fabric 22
count for practice. Proportionally, your patterns will come out a nice
size for accessorizing Elizabethan garb etc. Linen is of course best for
blackwork but difficult to work for some.

The fabric is blocked, but it's much more subtle than Aida, being more
closely woven.
