If you've never tried working with thread, this would be a great project to start with. It's not the tiniest thread, so don't be intimidated by it. I never worked with thread until I wrote my first book, and I love it! (especially # 3 thread) It's really not any smaller than a fingering wt, baby wt, or some sport wt. yarns
