My New Knit, a birthday, a Give-away and a Quilt Block

My new knit (which my Mom knit for me - I love it!!!). It still needs blocked (which I have to do) but I so cannot wait to wear it. Any suggestions on how to block it? It's 100% wool, I'm pretty sure. So no tossing it in the dryer on the high setting for me!:

My Mom's birthday is today. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM & GRANDMA (the Grandma part is from Jessie & Tyler)!!!! Stop on over at her blog and wish her a happy birthday.

My Mom and my Sister are both having give-aways. Something knitted from my Mom, and a bag from my sister (but my sister's you actually have to think on). So go pay them a visit! I know what Mom's knitting - and it's next on my list that I want!! hehe.

And here's block #67 from the Nearly Insane Quilt:

And yes, our corn crib is looking a little thin, but we have 2 acres of corn to put into it once we get the corn picker out and get going - which will be sometime in the next couple of weeks:)

Have a good day everyone!

I can't help with the blocking, as I have no idea what that really is! The sweater looks beautiful, though!
I love the quilt block for the "nearly insane" quilt; the name of that quilt is awesome!

That IS a pretty knit! And I love the block for the "nearly insane" quilt. Hope we'll see the rest of it?

And thank you for your kind words. I plan to keep my account so I can pop in on my favorite places and drop a note or two!
