    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.

      Comments about Cascade Yarns Fixation:

      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.

              This is my fourth pair of shortsummer socks using Fixation. I like the way the fabric stretches to hug my feet. I machine wash and dry the socks and have had no issues with shrinkage. It does take a little concentration at first to avoid stretching the yarn too much as you kniw. I crocheted some headbands with this yarn and they worked well.

              This yarn has the right amount of stretch. I knitted caring caps for cancer patients and they love the softness and the stretch this yarn allows for a comfortable fit. Also made head bands for babies and the stretch is perfect for those tiny heads to grow into.

                      I used this yarn with sock pattern it came with. I bought the yarn in two colors. I used one color for the ruffle and toe and the other for the foot. I was able to get two pairs of socks out of two balls of yarns. The second pair I used the opposite colors.
