Colourful Project #1 - 'Staccato' by Kirsten Kapur

I very much felt like working on some colourful projects, so this is the first colourful project that I recently started. I wanted to knit something that was colourful and comfortable, and that would be easy to get on and off, so I chose this pattern ('Staccato') for a hooded cardigan, by Kirsten Kapur. I'm using Cascade 220 for it, that I bought at Penelope Craft some time ago. I prefer to knit the pieces separately, so I figured out how to do that, based on the Staccato pattern. Also I'm deciding how wide to make each stripe and which colour to use as I go, I'm not using the pattern for that. And I decided to make the sleeves shorter than the pattern calls for, otherwise I think that the sleeves would have been to long for me. I'm really enjoying this project and I love working with all these colours. I'm on the second sleeve now (the back, the front, and the first sleeve are already done), so I'm making good progress and I hope to be able to show you the finished result soon.
