Garfield's new jumper

Just a quick post here, no nails, just knitting today.
A friend asked for a jumper for her Garfield because of this very cold weather, poor thing, he was getting very chilly.
The thing I hate most about knitting is the sewing up at the end, so on this one I seriously cheated. Having knitted a few gloves in recent weeks, I decided to follow the same method. I knitted the body in the round like a glove leaving 2 holes for the arms. I did the sleeves by picking up the stitches around the arm holes and knitted them in the round, like thumbs. 
He does look quite cosy now doesn't he :)
