Some of Alan's Designs:
The Tooth Fairy
Of course his ever popular gnomes!
Purl the Knitter is my favorite and you can see why here, on the right. Look at the detail put into her.
The first two are very similar in design, it appears the colors were changed. I actually have all three patterns and plan to work on them soon. That is once I can get into my craft room in the basement. I am also knitting Jean Greenhowe's Christmas Crib. Jean, after many request, added the Donkey to her Christmas Crib. The Donkey can be found in Christmas Treasures.

I have knitting Jean's design for a very long time. I knitted her dolls and animals since the late '80, early '90s. I remember working on the Cinderella Topsy Turvey doll for one week straight for my daughter. She would let me knit anything else until that doll was finished. She absolutely loved her. For easter they always got a hand knit doll or toy to go in their Easter basket. I was even commisioned to knit Emily fo the family social worker, who was having a baby at the time.
I fell into knitting Alan's designs quite by accident...I bought Simply Knitting and there was one of designs. It was the premier issue, however I bought the magazine ($13.95 CA) and have most of the copies since then.
Then along comes Joyce, known as joyknitcrochet on the net and on Ravelry. She has come up with a tutorial using Alan's gnomes as an example! Kudos to you Joyce for the work, great job! Check them out here: Notes on Shaping Gnome's Hat, Gnome's Mitten in the Rounds, and Gnome's Boot in the Rounds. Check out her blog in general, she has some beautiful pictures!
