Friday afternoon in November

The top picture is my husband hefting two of the mature tromboncino squashes, each weighs around 20 to 30 lbs.  So far hanging in the gazebo is around 10 mature squashes hanging, and on the vines are many more.  I don't know how long he will let them stay on the vines as he is getting antsy to prepare new plantings for the brussels sprouts and other cruciferous crops.  There are a couple knitting pictures taken at a restaurant we enjoy, one tiny shawl in brown will be one of the flower basket shawls; the picture of the vinca was all washed out and not pretty, and the rainbow one is knit by my friend Colleen and I am making the same shawl in the same yarn and colors. The bottom picture is me in the squashes; I am about 5'5" now so you can see how long the squashes get.

Garden today before I pick more of the brandywine tomatoes, and squashes and those shrubs of basil.
Oh, and Bleu likes to hang out in the cat carriers; each cat seems to have a preference, although there are three that look the same to me.  Gremlin sleeps in one at night, when he isn't laying between my lower legs holding me hostage all night long.

Yarn I have tried to show off

This was a gift from a friend for my birthday and I have had trouble uploading it from my photo program, but maybe now my Mac will let me put it there.
