Damn Blogger won't let me title this post. Bah!

A day late, but definately not a potato short--

Yup. No big change. But it did start to flower this week. That's exciting!! (If you're a dork like me that gets a rise out of growing a potato on your balcony.)

Next up, I mailed out a box of baby hats for Hats For Alex to Pam today.

Nineteen hats total. They represent each week we've lived in New Jersey. They also represent three loads of laundry each!

They're the best things to knit while doing laundry (thus the three loads=one load per person per week in this household) at the laundromat. They bust some serious stash, and they're a great way to try a new technique. I've got lacey ones, color worky ones, and a simple cable hat in there.

As a working mom who struggles to find decent child care in each damn state we live in, I identify with this rememberance project. It's every working mother's nightmare come true.

I'm making good progress with Tomato too. I probably won't finish it this weekend but definately next week.

I'll give you a hint: there are no little Alaskas or New Jerseys on the boobie band.

Sweet hats. Good cause, too.

Oh, I figured there wouldn't be Jerseys or Alaskas on the boob band. I can only hope that the pattern does NOT look like nipples.

Good job on a bunch of sweet little hats!

Okay - how do you know when there is a potato ready to be pulled up from the dirt?

For some reason Blogger wouldn't let me title my post either.

Go potatoes!

Were you trying to use naughty words in the title? ;-)

Cute hats, and cute potato plant, too!

I am also a nerd, but mine is with a tomato plant. I have like a dozen flowers looking at me and only one little tomato.

Nice hats!!!

Cute hats!

Bezzie - I had the same problem with the title. Switch to HTML tab and you can put in the title. I don't know why...

I'm not sure if I'm more amazed by the number of hats or the amount of laundry.

I'm having trouble getting titles for my posts too. I'm glad it's not just me!

Those hats are great. I need to get on a baby-hat-making kick. They're perfect for my commute.

Oh, and I meant to give you credit for the inspiration for my DPN storage. I didn't have a VHS Clamshell box handy, so I went with the cigar box. I did give you credit when I posted it to the Knitty Gallery.

Blogger blows! wouldn't let me upload one of my pictures. The others were fine. Oh well. As for tomato...is it little tomatoes on the booby band???

I had no idea potato plants were so...weedy! It seems to be a successful experiment, though: can't wait to see the harvest!

I have one little plant - well, I guess it's really 4 really little plants - and it's a pepper plant. It is not thriving. We get very little sun, so it always looks sad. If only I had a sunny balcony!

Eh, who needs a title. :) What you're doing with the HFA is astounding, by the way. I hope to send some hats soon myself. Thanks for inspiring me.

I had trouble with my title today as well -- Blogger wouldn't let me modify mine once it was up.

Those hats will make some newborns very happy!

Cute hats! Can not wait to see the Mater finished. Don't do any digging while your Potater is blooming---they are making taters when they are doing that. My guess is you will have a few small potaters or what they call "New" potaters. Love, Mom

Those hats are great!

Flowering plants are exciting! The day my damn orchid plant flowers again (it's been over a year since the first blooms dropped off), I will be singing from the hills like Julie Andrews.

when blogger won't let you click in the title box, if you click on the word 'title' instead, it will put the cursor in the box so you can title. i have no idea why.

and i am amazed at 2 adults and a child having only 3 loads of laundry a week. is this 3 triple size machines at the laundromat? or do you dry clean 80% of what you own? i really can't fathom such a small amount!

Nice hats for a good cause! Can't wait to see a potato pop out of that plant.
