      I'm knitting a pair of socks with this yarn and it's so soft and stretchy. And it stripes beautifully!

      Comments about Cascade Yarns Fixation Effects & Spray Dyed:

      I purchased the color "tequila" and the colors didn't really knit up the way I had expected - not enough bands of color to establish a nice pattern (see photos)instead it's a mish mash of bold colors. If I knitted back and forth instead of in the round the color scheme was nicer for some reason. This yarn is very stretchy and takes a bit of getting used to so that it isn't stretched out of shape when knitting or else the final results are a bit off kilter, as my first projects turned out to be! Having said that I like the feel of the socks on my feet and they feel snug and soft (can feel the purl bumps but not too bad). This is fun to knit with once you get a feel for how to tension it. Wasn't sure if I liked it at first - but I ended up liking it I just have to find colors that work for me, but there's a lot to choose from.

        I love this yarn particularly for baby hats. It works up so nicely and is adorable on a baby. I tend to give them as gifts. They are so appreciated because of the beautiful colors and the way they fit a baby's little head. Perfect gift to give and recieve.

            It seems small but goes a long way. I absolutely love the stretchiness. I've been using it for arm bands, and can't find anything else that even comes close. And it disguises errors very nicely - no "ladders" in my knitting! I will definitely be buying more.

            Comments about Cascade Yarns Fixation Effects & Spray Dyed:

            I've made socks with Fixation, and like the result. Once I understood working with its stretchiness, it was a fun yarn to knit with. The colors are bright and saturated and flow evenly and well. I used double-pointed circulars (2), and they did well with this yarn. The elastic produces a nice, smooth-fitting sock that is very size-adjustable without need for blocking. I've just ordered several more balls to make gifts.

                    I am so happy to see some new mixed color of the original Fixation yarn. I made a baby hat for a friend's baby and it striped well. So cute too. Has the same great features of original Fixation in that it washes and dries nicely. Hats made with Fixation yarn will last baby/child/adult a very long time. It stretches easily and that's what I love about it.
