      Comments about Cascade Yarns Fixation Effects & Spray Dyed:

      I love this product! It's perfect for crocheting infinity scarves that don't weigh you down, have some stretch for putting on/off and still blocks wind and cold from your neck areas. I made several scarves for family, friends and 1 for myself; everyone loves theirs - and have told me so numerous times.
      I've also used this product for baby hats- great for preemies because it's so gentle and soft; plus it stretches some while they grow. This makes the hat a good investment as well because the child can wear it over a longer period of time. They don't out grow it before they get a chance to wear it.
      Booties- again provides comfort, warmth and longer wear-time.
      And it crochets up easily! Looks like a dream every time.

          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.

                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.
