While the characters might not get along on-screen, the actors on GENERAL HOSPITAL are a tight-knit bunch, and speaking of “knit”… Cynthia Watros (Nina) simply had to show off an amazing homemade present she recently got from castmate Kirsten Storms (Maxie)! “I received one of the best gifts of my life.. a Kirsten Storms sweater,” Watros shared on Instagram with a selfie of her wearing the lovely lavender creation. “I love love it and I love her so much.”
Fans of Storms already know that the talented actress is also a very talented knitter and she and BFF Emme Rylan (ex-Lulu) have even done “knit-alongs” with fans on Instagram. So she was happy to share her talent with Watros. “She is a ray of sunshine in this world,” Storms said of her GH co-star. “A truly kind and generous person. A woman who supports other women — and means it. I adore her. So I made her a sweater. It’s my love language. Enjoy, Cynthia! You deserve all the pretty things!”
Storms also made sure to note for fans who might be interested in crafting this particular sweater that it is the “Top Gun Bomber” and the pattern is available from Knitatude. Inspired by a bomber jacket, the Top Gun Bomber cardigan hits at the natural waistline and features flowy bishop sleeves.
Naturally, fans and friends flooded the comments of both actresses with praise and compliments. Katelyn MacMullen (Willow) shared a series of heart-eye emojis and Theo and Erik Olson (ex-Wiley) used fire emojis. Finola Hughes (Anna) called it “Gorgeous!” while Cameron Mathison (Drew) declared “Beautiful” with some applause emojis.
Perhaps one day Storms will open an Etsy shop online as Rylan has so that fans can purchase her handmade creations. Until then, you’ll just have to click that link above to visit the Knitatude website and make this beautiful sweater for yourself!
