I forgot to mention that I got a copy of the new Vogue Knitting at my LYS over the weekend! I know it wasn't supposed to be available until August, but stores must have early access. What a great resource. I know I'll be using this book a lot!

I sewed together the shoulder seams of the Maggie sweater last night. I should be able to finish setting in the sleeves and doing the side seams this evening. I loved working on this project, but black mohair makes the finishing a bit hard. I also started another shape motif hat, "Rhombus," in yellow and purple.

I cut out the pattern pieces for the blue plaid dress. I decided to do a combination of dresses B and C so I didn't have to match all the seams. The front and back top pieces were cut on the bias while the skirt pieces were cut along the grainline. I think this will make the dress look more visually interesting.
