    Fun, but not the best for beginners

    Having never stitched a stitch in my life, I wanted a good beginner kit. Not only does Miss Wooly's have everything you need to get started (12 patterns, with supplies to make 6 of them), it is also a fun and spooky theme. So why 3 stars? (2.5 is what I would have preferred to give.) The instruction book was incredibly vague. Not good for a beginner at all! For example, the author tells you to separate two strands of floss, but doesn't clarify what this means (beginners may not know that a strand is just one of many in the skein) or how to do it without ending up covered in tangled floss! The patterns include 1/4 and 3/4 stitches, but these aren't mentioned at all in the instructions. Finally, when you actually start a pattern, the directions are basically, "thread your needle, stitch all the stitches in this color, now stitch all the stitches in that color, now you're done!" Maybe it's just me, but as a beginner, I wouldn't mind a few more details. I get that cross-stitch becomes intuitive quickly, but for someone who has never done it before, I need to be told exactly what to do! I don't see any way someone could learn to cross-stitch with just this kit. I ended up using several other resources to get off the ground. I would not recommend it to someone who does not know how to cross stitch but wants to learn. That being said, I loved the patterns and I love that I had everything I needed to get started (except detailed instructions).

    I couldn't agree more with the previous review. I wanted to lea

    I couldn't agree more with the previous review. I wanted to learn cross stitch and this kit seemed very basic - until I tried to understand the very vague directions. No where does it state that the two strands of floss need to be pulled out of the one large strand of floss. By the time I noticed that something didn't look right, or feel right (it became almost impossible to get the needle into the aida) I had completely ruined the first project! I had to look up a beginners video about cross stitch and low and behold - the first thing stated was to separate the floss! What an oversight on the author's part! Now that that is out of the way - the kit has been a breeze to get through and proving to be a very enjoyable past time! I have just ordered the author's second kit and looking forward to starting it.
