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:

                  Fixation yarns are the perfect solution for knit/crocheted items for wee ones. The yarn's ability to stretch (give) a bit so as not to confine the baby's delicate skin, nor pinch or leave indentations yet retain its shape makes for beautiful crowns, headbands, hats and caps along with items even for pets, (cowls, scarves, etc).
                  The available colors range from soft pastels to bold and bright. Feminine to masculine, as well as neutral too.
                  But don't just limit yourself to knitting with this yarn for infants, babies and toddlers - hats for adults always feel perfect - not like they're beginning to squeeze your head after a short time. Fixation yarn is my favorite yarn now- I just wish my hands could work as fast as I dream of the next projects I want to make from Fixation yarns.

                      Comments about Cascade Yarns Fixation:

                      I'm fairly new to sock-knitting and only discovered Cascade Fixation recently. I made a pair of " pedicure socks" and was very pleased with how the yarn worked up and the finished product. The built-in elasticity made a snug but comfortable sock and the heavier weight made knitting faster and easier. The colors are nicely combined and well saturated. The only slight concern I had was adjusting to the tension within the yarn itself, but, once I got used to working with its stretchiness, it was easy to find my rhythm. I think this yarn would be especially good in "low-cuff" socks and fingerless mitts, where fit is important.
                      I found a nice selection of colors and blends at WEBs.
