My 11 yr old dd got the set for Christmas. I tried it, but it was too monotonous (sp?) for me. My ADD likes variety, lol. She tried to make a baby hat on the smaller one, but it turned into a cool coaster for her water bottle lol. She enjoys it though. She does use 2 strands of worsted on it. She is making a hat on the next larger now. I do think that it doesn't stretch very well either, although her stitches aren't twisted. They are very straight.
