Cambridge and Christmas

Mommy finished her Cambridge shawl and I got to be the first to wear it!  I think it's too big for me - she wrapped it around my neck several times, or maybe I've just gotten used to the perfectly fitting, small shawls she's been doing.  This is a big, wrap around yourself, snuggle into it kind of shawl.  I think it will keep Mommy warm and I know that when I cuddle with her, she'll wrap it around me too.  She used 4 skeins of Madelinetosh Pashmina in Logwood to make it and I like this yarn - it's very soft.  Mommy says it's nice to knit with too.  She also said to tell you that once you get a feel for the pattern (it takes a few rows to figure out what's going on), it's very easy and she worked on it all over town and with Maximus and didn't lose her place.

We've had lots of things going on around here lately.  My human brother turned 11 and he loves these really scary things, so Mom and Dad got him some for his birthday.  These things are scarier than Max (who's really pretty scary when you have teeth and claws flying at you).  They float and they look at me and they're way to close to my kitchen cave - I won't go in there unless I absolutely have to, and then I'm not staying for long.  Those scary things are watching me, I know it.  Mommy says they're called balloons and they won't hurt me, but I don't think Mommy understands the true threat here.
Yesterday Mommy (with Max's help) did something really weird and it didn't involve yarn.  She did her nails (which isn't weird, she does that all the time), but she did something called water marbling.  Now her nails look like swirly peppermints.  She said she watched several videos on You Tube (just search water marbling tutorials) and each was a little different and when she had it figured out, she did it.  Now my Grandmommy wants festive Christmas nails, so they're going to do Grandmommy's nails later today.
Mommy wanted me to tell you that she'll be blogging off and on through the end of the year, but it won't be regular.  We all hope every single one of you has a wonderful Christmas.  I hope Santa has something special in his bag, and maybe your gift won't have as many teeth as mine does.  Merry Christmas from the Pink Lemon Family to all of you!

Oh, my! Max-in-a-bag!

Hope the Pink Lemon family has a wonderful Christmas, too.

(I'd love to see the Christmas-marbled nails.)

I get such a kick out of your blog with its hysterical dog and kitty adventures.

You've inspired me to knit my own Cambridge shawl, and Cotton Candy socks, too. But I've lost my socks and want to make another pair. Wouldn't you know I don't have the yarn info either. Can you help?

Hi Rebecca, I'm not sure what socks are the cotton candy socks? I've knit a bunch of pink socks, can you help me narrow it down? Sorry to be less than helpful.

Cotton Candy was the colorway. The yarn was a fairly lightweight wool/nylon mixture. They were striped in pink, darker pink, aqua, and medium lavender, as I recall. You can see them in my Ravelry projects in the 10th row down from the top, next to the ValenTINA Clapotis. My Ravelry name is Rowdy.
