This is my family's favorite for shortie socks. I have made at least 3 pairs each for my husband, son, and daughter.

The fingerless mitts are nice because they stay put on your hands. I have made several pairs for gifts and everyone raves about them.

I also have made several chemo caps for friends. They use the hats primarily as sleeping caps because they stay on and keep their bald heads warm.

Easy and fun to work with, I thought I would love wearing the nicely patterned pair of socks I was able to knit with just two balls (200 yds). However, the fabric created felt so uncomfortable on the bottoms of my feet - even in plain stockinette you begin to feel every stitch. I knit two pair, just to be sure - and I truly would not recommend this yarn for socks! In case you absolutely must knit socks, a couple tips: be careful not to stretch the yarn when knitting (it's quite elastic) and be sure to dry your socks on sock forms or they dry quite misshapen.

              This was great for making chemo caps for my BFF, You don't have to worry about the fit due to the stretch in the yarn and the selection of colors is very good. I told my BFF I wanted her to have a different color "hair/hat) for each day of the week!

                I'm still in the middle of my project with this yarn. I deliberately chose a solid color, but I have found that knitting solid socks is Boring. I do like the stretch and the texture though, and I think I will like the finished product.

                    I used the fixation yard to make a ruffled skirt for my great, great niece who is only 2. She loved the skirt and the waistline was a wonderful fit.

                        This makes the best baby shoes/socks/booties because the stretch keeps them on little feet and allows them to fit for a long time. It does shrink some in the dryer, but the stretch makes that of little import.
