What yarn do men like to wear for scarves and hats on those cold fall and winter days?

I would like to knit hats for my husband and adult son--both outdoors types...tramping through the woods or running/walking for exercise.

Any suggestions? Pattern favorites are welcome as well.

Tonalita by Trendsetter Yarns (52% wool, 48% acrylic, hand wash) now comes in a colorway of black and shades of gray .. called Smoke & Ash, color # 2397. so far all my male customers have liked it.

Keep knitting, this too shall pass.

I made my husband a hat out of Noro Silk Garden in a muted colourway and I have some Malabrigo in stash for a scarf and especially that malabrigo is probably going to be a hit I think.

I love Manos. I made a scarf for a friend of my DS and he loved it. I made my son one out of Rowan Tapestry--another hit.

Again, 1824! I love that wool! I did a basketweave for my husband. I think there's a pic of it on my blog if you go back far enough.

As I get older, I prefer to knit. Tracey Ullman UPDATED! WITH PICS!
