From time to time I've mentioned SKK & ARK's musical interests. Over the past several years we have spent a good deal of our time going back and forth to NYC for lessons, rehearsals and performances. It has been an amazing experience to watch them grow as performers and musicians. Music and performance have allowed them to develop in so many other ways as well. They have become more mature, responsible, intellectually curious and confident. They have been exceptionally lucky to have caring, talented teachers and mentors who not only instruct them, but serve as role models. What more could a parent wish for?
This past weekend they performed with their band "Blame the Patient" at Southpaw in Park Slope, Brooklyn. The band was amazing. It was obvious from their stage presence that they have reached a level of confidence that allows each member's personality to shine through. I could not be more proud of them.
In other news, there are knit alongs starting in March for two of my patterns. Both Breathe Deep and Dr. G's Memory Vest have been chosen to be part of the Malabrigo March KAL in the Malabrigo Junkies group on Ravlery. If you've been wanting to knit one of these patterns, head over to the group and join in. You'll find the Breathe Deep thread here and the Dr. G's thread here.
