Grafting live stitches of sleeves to arm hole

When we have only knit stitches then we first insert the needle from front to back as in first figure and then for the next stitch from back to front as shown in the second figure.

And then we pass the needle under horizontal baron the armhole side.
When we have purl stitch after the knit stitch then we insert the needle for the knit stitch from front to back through which we have already passed our needle for the previous stitch and then for the purl stitch we insert the needle from front to back. As shown in the figure below.inthis waywe  have to pass the needle through each stitch twice.

After that we pass the needle through horizontal bar on the armhole side.

Horseshoe and heart cable cardigan

 Ordered some wool online and started knitting this cardigan with cable patterns.lt took some time to figure out the combination as I wanted to include horse shoe cable and heart cable.
Crocheted this doily with some local thread.got free chart pattern from netbut it is looking twisted.i think this is the effect of crocheting in round.anyways the doily is complete for now.i encountered the same problem while crocheting the card hanger.i have to crochet  granny square and it started twist ING after two three rows.i looked up on net and started turning work after every other row and it fixed the problem

Tunisian crochet and brioche knitting

 From net got the idea of making Tunisian crochet Hook from pencil and knitted a swatch with tss.the second one I made from icecream stick and is double sided but it snags on wool I painted it with clear nailpolish but the problem was still there.i think I have to discard it. But the pencil one is ok.
 I started a very ambitious project of brioche knitted scarf . The knitting speed is very slow.snd is also consuming lot of wool.a nd also not getting right combination.
