  1. Wouldn’t this be a fun stitch to include in TAST?

    Well, it’s really just another variant of long tail detatched chain or feathered chain, but one I didn’t think of myself, and there are only so many stitches which are not “variants”.
    By the way, i sometimes think it might be fun to allow wishes for TAST, if only for a limited time.
