dye ran when washing blanket
I knitted a baby blanket with bone-colored organic cotton. Since I did not have enough to make the blanket as big as I wanted it, I added a red border with Luna cotton yard: one skein per side. The dye on one side of the red border ran when I washed the blanket in cool water. Now a part of the bone section - just a few rows but enough to be noticed - is a light pink color. Any suggestions on how I can fix this? One person at the yarn store said to bleach the affected area by brushing bleach on it, another said to dye the entire blanket & fix the dye job with vinegar. The third person said not to worry. What can I do? I'm concern that the red dye will continue to run. Thanks for the help.
