Hat for my brother (My design)

I have made this hat for my brother. I have used circular needles size 4mm, and 4.5mm.
Its pattern raises the problem of changing the flat stitches to circular one again. I have changed many flat stitches to circular stitches, and wandered about the criteria of that changing.  Of course there are some of criteria , but also there are some flat stitches cannot be circular. One of that kind of stitches which doesn't change to circular is that one which borrow some of it from previous one.
I changed that one to circular , but found out it is difficult to write the pattern.

Set for my Niece (My pattern)

I have made this set for my niece -Logy- she is 10 months. It is circular down to top, and this is my own pattern and design. I have made some embroidery on that set. I love embroidery so much with crochet , and knit. this time I have made the embroidery using the Silk Ribbon embroidery which I have learned lately.
I will let you with the picture from plain to embroidered touch. I have made the 3D roses -different types, and I have used two kind of embroidery stitches -braid, and daisy.
Here is the whole set 

Here is close look

Proplem and slution

The problem
I have read the Elizabeth Zimmerman's book about making different style of  circular garments. It is down to top . It is good book , and easy to follow. I have countered one problem with this technique; it is the underarm and sleeve alive stitches. 
According to her technique you should leave alive stitches of sleeve, and alive stitches of body. then you make Kitchener stitches to close those alive stitch. Here is the result when I did as the book said. Of course it is awful result!!! The stitches extended as you see and are so loose. I didn't like it at all.
I have made a blouse for my mum last year , and got an idea of bind off the underarm stitches before joining sleeves with body. It was better , but still have holes around the underarm stitches. So I have to think in another solution for this problem.

The solution ( In my opinion)
This time I let the stitches alive -as the book said, but don't make the Kitchener stitch. I have used the crochet hook to close the alive stitches first or bind them off , Then graft the stitches.
Here are the steps before you graft the closed stitches. This  is better-in my opinion- because I can close the extended stitches of the yoke, and even avoid the holes around the underarm stitches.
any way it is what I made, and wanted to share it with you .

Jacket for my sister

I have made this -evening jacket- for my sister. It was her idea to make her this jacket using Eyelash yarn. I didn't mind lol I want to try this kind of yarn. Why not.
I have used 8 skeins of this kind of yarn, and knitting needle size 6mm. Here is the result.
It is huge , and gives a fur appearance .
It was easy to knit with this kind of yarn, and this big needle. The only difficult with it is , you cannot see the rows or stitches so you have to use a row counter, and be very careful not to drop a stitch.
