If the student is kitting themselves

Some may want to change the colors.  For example, it would look lovely stitched with a colored thread on white linen or vice versa – which makes it easier for those that can’t see as well.  But please note that it is not recommended to change the thread count as the stitches work best when stitching on 35-count linen.
