I was scrolling through Facebook the other day, when I was surprised to see pictures of two of my patterns staring back at me.

The first was the Alex Adorable knit vest. It was featured in the Stitch Sprouts blog post on back to school projects. I really loved making this.  It looks like complicated color work, but through the magic of slip stitches, I only had to use one color on each row.

The second surprise was sneak peak photos of my Chanukah Afghan design for Mainly Crochet. I designed it, and my contract crocheter, Ann, did a great job at stitching.

The Chanukah Afghan is in production, so the pattern isn’t available just yet. But in the meantime, you can check out the other neat patterns at Mainly Crochet.
