My Spring Cotton Polo Finished

Seeing all the snow across North America in May is odd indeed.  Originally from the North Eastern US it is not the norm for sure.

Having relocated to the desert southwest it's spring for us, warm and toasty, shorts and t-shirt weather.  Our temperatures have been in the 80's and even 90's already.  In one corner of my yard, I have a bit of desert landscape;  here is the first cactus to bloom this year:
For All Of You In Snow
Back to the polo...

This was done in a Yeoman cotton/acrylic.  I rearranged the buttonholes as I never button the top button so why bother having it?  This was a bit troublesome to knit as it has a hard twist and no give as you knit.  What I like about the yarn is a quick wash and lay flat to dry.  All stitches evened up and the fabric looks great.

The photo design is not the best but, you can see the exact color as it was a bit tricky to capture!  Now for the buttons.
