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 use this yarn to knit infant and children's hats. The yarn is especially nice for infants bc the gentle stretch allows the hat to stay on. I knit hats for premature infants at a local hospital and the floor nurses prefer this yarn over all others. It is very soft and does not bleed or shed plus it stays on.

                Great for knitting clothes for dolls as there is enough stretch to knit a jumper or dress without having to allow for a fastener so can be knitted in the round and then just pull over the top of the dolls head.

                  I had bought this to finish a woven lap blanket and it turned out the stretch in it didn't match what I had been using. However, I turned part of the blanket into dish cloths and they're very absorbent. I could see using this yarn for excellent knitted cotton socks with that little bit of elasticity to make pulling them on easier!

                    Using this to knit and crochet bikinis. Have not finished yet. Will update review after it is complete and tested in the water. So far the elasticity of the yarn seems to be just what I was looking for!

                      Comments about Cascade Yarns Fixation:

                      I really love this stuff, because all my life, I've turned up my jacket sleeves and pulled up my sweater sleeves and stretched them out, so after a day of wearing my sleeves always looked like they belonged on a giant with 16" wrists. Ugly. And when they widen out like that, it's easy to drag them through stuff. And did I mention that I love, love, love cotton sweaters (and silk)? Needless to say, those are the ones that most tend to the stretching out over the course of a day thing. So I love Fixation.

                      I'm also thinking about knitting an entire baby sweater out of the stuff, because you know how hard it is to dress little persons?
