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 used this to make hats for babies at Mass General Hospital. The cotton content is important because of possible allergies. I used double pointed needles and found it almost impossible to hide the "ladders" from one needle to another, but when the hats were finished it didn't detract at all. The feel of the cotton is great and the elastic content makes the wearing of the hats comfortable for a range of head sizes.

    Comments about Cascade Yarns Fixation:

    I was disappointed when I opened the box to find such tiny balls of yarn, and I didn't think I could make two socks from it.I was surprised and impressed that so much yarn could come in such a small ball. The texture is rustic, and the fabric is stretchy. Very nice.

        Love the stretch and it is easy to knit up. Works wonderfully well in making doll clothes as they hold their shape but make it easy for little girls to dress their doll.

          Comments about Cascade Yarns Fixation:

          I was truly surprised about the stretch in this yarn, but it was what the pattern called for. Since I had never used this I was a little reluctant. I rewound all the balls first so the yarn could relax and found it easy to use. I would definitely use this again.
          The yarn shipped immediately and was packaged properly as well. I would recommend this company to others. Very happy with them.

            I love the yarn and apparently many people do because it was backordered. I got it within a reasonable amount of time, but still have not received the other color I ordered. I knit infant hats with this yarn on a round needle, 12", also purchased at Webs.

                Comments about Cascade Yarns Fixation:

                I think a 3.5 (size E) crochet hook works much better than the smaller hook recommended on the yarn label. It takes some getting used to working with this stretchy yarn: you really need to leave it slack as you work it for maximum stretch on the finished object.

                  I have only used it on the waistband for doll skirts and it works great. The price is great and I really like not needing to search stores for the yarn.
