No sewing if you knit the sleeves in the round. The pattern has you picking up stitches and then knitting flat. I'm not going to do that. Knitting in the round is just as easy and no seaming!
The yarn is left over from MY sweater. It's Bernat's Denim Style and is a nice yarn to work with.
I'm not positive what I'm going to do yet, but I didn't make button holes. I "might" try putting on snaps or maybe velcro. Then I can put cute buttons on the front. I may also add a ribbon to the neck if I decide it's for a girl.
