<Thanks for all your help. My friend tried to use the linen last night,
but for her it didn't work out. she couldn't seem to keep the stiches the
same length. Will try the Hardanger cloth. >
I have problems working with linen, too (eyesight and focus problems), even
with magnifyers clipped onto my bifocals. I've used 22 count hardanger for
years,and have found some nice 28 count linen substitutes, like Jobelan.
These substitutes are for people like me who can't seem to get the hang of
linen. I *hate* the Slub Factor of modern linen. :-(
