Another in the catching up series, from last year's Christmas knitting. My mother lives on a farm in Saskatchewan, where it gets to -30 C, and feels colder with a wind. Layers of things that can be machine washed and dried are called for there, so I knitted her this hoodie. I don't usually knit much with acrylic, but sometimes the easy-care nature is important.
