      Comments about Cascade Yarns Fixation Effects & Spray Dyed:

      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 made half socks to wear with thongs for myself and as gifts. Worked easily and well for my application. I will be on the lookout for more projects I can use this with.

            LOVE IT!

              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.

                  I was given 2 balls of Fixation to make Chemc Caps for a "Knit for the Cure" event. I became entranced with the yarn and REALLY love making those caps! I enjoy using verigated yarns of all kinds as they keep my projects from becoming boring. What else can I make with Fixation???

                      I only use it for making headbands. You have to get used to using it. You cannot stretch while using. I have not used for anything else.
