knitting baby hats

though i haven't had the chance to do much knitting, a few little baby hats have been completed. it seems like new babies are arriving all the time. the baby hat is a very satifsfying project. quick to complete, mainly due to size, and you can really have fun with pom poms and tassles and so forth. lately i've been using the hat pattern from Last Minute Knitted Gifts, though making it a bit smaller so that the babies can wear it earlier. but really baby hats are super simple, and the need for any actual pattern is negligable.

other news, i changed the packaging on my soaps. i think they look really nice and it's certainly easier for me to do. i just stocked the store with all the soaps that we were making in december, i hope i get some feedback on the new labels.

just so you know, George and i are sharing this blogger account and now my blog will show as signed by George. but it's still me.

taking advantage

i have the rare luxury of a week off of my office job, and K. is keeping his daycare schedule so that i can do some work on my soap biz, start getting up to speed on the bike biz and just get some outside time before i start working full time.

yesterday we hiked the pinnacle in Stowe, it's part of the Worchester Range that runs behind our house and, unbelievable as it is, this was actually the first time that we've done this trail. It's only 1.6 miles to the top, but like most trails here it goes straight up.
