Donna designed Cirrus using Cuzco®. She designed bracelet length sleeves to show off her charm bracelet collection; garter stitch button bands borrowed from Nimbus are fastened with a fantastic antique button.
Norah designed Stratus using Blackstone
Tweed™ in Plum Island, an earthy purple that fit well into Norah’s wardrobe. Norah knit the coat she felt was missing from her winter wardrobe—generous ribbing and easy to execute texture make this an instant staple.
I whipped up the Cumulus coat using bulky Sundae™ in about 24 hours! The elbow length puffed sleeves and deep pockets are my favorite part. Wide garter button bands were the perfect canvas for delightfully oversized buttons, a gift from Norah’s vintage stash.
Even though it was difficult to make these garments at such a busy time of year, it was an excellent reminder of how rewarding our hobby is. Take the time to find a favorite and make it your own in 2010.
