Accidents Happen!

That's what I tell the kids all the time. But you think I would have known better. I have not had a laundry accident in many years. I was doing a cold water, handwash cycle for my hand knits. Then I saw this rayon, dry clean only dress in the laundry and said to myself: "that should survive a cold water, handwash cycle". And it DID! Looks good as new, but, it had the temerity to bleed all over my precious handknits. I immediately tried to then bleach them, and that didn't do a thing. Oh well, enjoy the photo and try not to have an "accident" while rolling on the floor laughing.

Ouch!
On the bright side, your new socks now looks kettle dyed! Happy 4th!

Oh man! I am SO sorry and no I'm so not rolling on the floor laughing. That beautiful sweater! Can you over dye it? Or go after it with a chlorox pen on the worse parts on the right sleeve and then over dye it light pink? Or soak it in BIZ?

Happy 4th despite the rain and lack of sun.

That's too horrifying to laugh about. I am sorry for you.

Now it's your favorite pink sweater. ;0) Maybe you should dye the socks some color now. Did you knit the sweater? I am sorry about your accident. Bummer!

Gosh -- you must be heartbroken. I guess you could try to dye it now to even out the colors....the pink is pretty though.......

Oh no! That is heartbreaking. I second the overdyeing suggestion.
