The good news is, I have finished my Mock Cable Socks after a month, the bad news is..............
the dye has run from the yarn!!!!
I soaked them last night, ready to block and when I came to take them out of the sink, they looked like this. I was going to do some toe surgery and remove the cream and replace with the brown but the whole sock is patchy, with some of the rib and foot, turning a purple/blue colour. I will still wear them around the house, though.
I have used the Natural Dye Studio yarns a few times and have never had this problem before, I'm obviously gutted after spending all those hours knitting them but it was just one of those things.
I have got to say the customer service has been excellent, I emailed them this morning and within 20 minutes I had an email back, apologising and a full refund. They haven't had any other problem with this dye lot so it was just my bad luck. They are also looking into why this would have happened so that's all I can ask for, sometimes company's pass the buck which they didn't.
