I finished my knitting on the Twin Peaks Shawl last night and wove in the ends this morning. The weather was kind of nuts here today, and the power was knocked out. So I figured that it would be a good time to soak the shawl and then block it.
I haven’t gotten to the blocking yet. I’m still hung up on the soaking part.
When I went back after an hour or so to remove the shawl from the tub where it was soaking, I was floored by the amount of blue dye that had run off the shawl.
I’ve rinsed and rinsed and rinsed and the blue dye is still running off it in nearly the same intensity as before.
Is this normal?
