No I haven't washed it. That's why I had bleed in " ". What it looks like is the red yarn is fuzzing up pretty bad and covering up the white. So it looks a bit like it bled. Does that make sense?

I also notice that I got a rectangle more or less and not a square? Is that normal? I thought I would end up with a square.
