Went to do a quick wash & block for the pieces to the cabled carti (finished them a couple of days ago) and lo and behold, the beautiful cranberry red that caught my eye in the store has bled all over!
I washed again - same thing. Wash water that looks like something out of a homicide scene. So I got out the vinegar.
One vinegar soak down. Then in the rinse the red kept coming out - I figured that I didn't use hot enough water.
Went for soak #2. Used the last of my vinegar. Son of a.... still has red dye bleeding out. I have NEVER had bleeding problems like this before! Worse part is that I still have 6 skeins of this stuff left.
Going to get a 5 gallon jug of vinegar tomorrow and look up some new swear words.
