At last I started working on 32nd week’s stitch of the TAST 2012 challenge by SharonB – Cast on stitch.
This stitch is really tough, I had zero control over the tension, working, placement on these stitch attempts. With no idea forthcoming for the stitch sampler, I took an easy way to work this stitch with other stitches, One way to practice this stitch.
The stitch practice sessions resulted in this-

The details-
1. While working the first three, I had no idea what was going on! The next few are combined with chain stitch, fly stitch and oyster stitches.
