Cub Scouts and knitting stuff

Sorry for the lapse in blogging. I usually blog in the evening when I get the children settled. But last night?

Last night was a big night in the Eldest's Cub Scout world. He got his Tiger badge finally. I'm super proud of him, he worked really hard to earn it. He also got a boatload of other patches/pins/belt loops/etc. When one of the important rank badges are earned, the scout's parents get roped into the ceremony. I felt like a complete dork up there. I'm involved, but only with helping him earn other things. I don't usually attend meetings or go camping and stuff. So I was really uncomfortable being pulled up there to do the ceremony, especially since I don't know many of the parents there. Here's a pic:

One cool thing happened there though. I was talking to one of the parents and felt someone tap me on the shoulder. I turned to see who it was and it turned out to be someone I had gone to high school with. His kid has joined up for scouts too. It really is a very small world huh?

On the knitting front, I started on the other sleeve of the cabled pullover. I can still only do about 10 or 12 rows before it makes my hands and wrists hurt. I'm not sure why or what I'm doing wrong. I'm still not sure what to do about the sleeve length, but right now I'm leaning towards hemming it later.

I got a pattern in the mail today. I'd show it to you, but it's for a super secret project. Hi MOM! :) I need to go pick out the yarn for it and get started on it. It's sitting on my desk in front of me as I type and teasing me. I want to start on it NOW!

I'm trying to be a good girl and not have too many projects started at once, but it's really hard... temptation is such a bad thing.
