The trouble with red!
I emailed Carol and she suggested adding vinegar to the water to stop the color loss. I am afraid that it only bound the color tighter to the natural. So while this blanket is a no go, I learned a ton about it's construction and how it held up under a gazillion washes.
I learned that I need to join new yarn at the selvedges where it will be more securely woven in, and that it would be good to wash on a gentle cycle for a frequently washed item like a Baby Blanket.
I am still winding warp so I won't bore you with pictures. I am also still running, though I won't be posting miles anymore, in fact I am considering a 5 mile race next week, haven't decided yet.
Until next time, Happy Weaving, Tina
