Mermaid Update

I posted an update (with sleeve pictures) on my blog the other day. Since that time I have finished the knitting part of Mermaid! I'm hoping to do the i-cord edge of my second sleeve tonight and hopefully start the seaming. I had a question for everyone before I start:

What is the best way to seam Mermaid? Should I block the pieces first, then seam? Or seam together, then block? Also, I'm a bit confused about the collar and shoulder seaming. I'm going to check through the other blogs that have already finished Mermaid to see if they have any suggestions. I might even attempt to read the pattern directions! :)

Hopefully within the next few days I'll have a finished sweater to show. Then I'm thinking about "Tweedie"....

Any thoughts? (Thanks in advance.)

Wouldn't you know, I'm behind in Bloglines and you go and finish, and when I try to load your blog, I can't! Has to be some configuration with my work computer which has been giving me fits this week. Which is about the right timing with 2 big projects due in the next two weeks. Anyway, congrats! And I'll try again tonight from home. :)

I am working on Tweedie. The cool part is that it is done on larger needles, 4mm (US 6), so I bought it hoping it would go faster than something on tinier needles. I am just not a fast knitter but it is coming along. I haven't worked on it in about a month but if you have any questions I will be happy to refresh my memory.
