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.


2.The other stitches are buttonhole , zigzag back and whipped wheel .


3. Cast on stitches worked with Algerian eye stitch, and then, two experiments of cast on stitches were bravely attempted


4.first one is another way to use this cast on stitch. Cast on stitches worked with buttonhole wheel variation and feather stitch.

5. herringbone ,Cretan, closed buttonhole and up and down buttonhole stitches are combined with cast on stitches in this part of the sampler.


Though it is a wonderful stitch, I need lots of practice to actually use this stitch on any embroidery projects.
