Have you stitched on 6 count fabric?

I saw some cross stitch kits that are worked on 6 count, and I liked the idea of large, easy-on-the-eyes projects that I could work on while travelling.
But rather than buy a kit, I will probably just look for some 6 count aida and choose my own design.
Does anyone know how many strands of floss are recommended for such large stitches? And is it ok to move your hoop around on the design or will the stitches get stretched and come loose?

well since you would 3 strands of floss for 11 count aida, I would assume that you would use either 3 or 4 strands of floss for the 6 count.
