Blue [Jan. 4th, 2019|08:36 am]
Tony Grist
I got up in the night and went to the bathroom and happened to look at my hands and saw they were turning blue.

The discolouration was most noticeable at the knuckles and joints. It looked subcutaneous. Had I done something to cause bruising? I didn't think so. There was no pain, the fingers still wiggled excellently. Unpleasant words started running through my head- cyanosis, doctors, hospital...

"Oh well," I thought. "Nothing I can do about it now. I'll go back to bed."

My hands were still blue in the morning. I was getting used to it. "Perhaps they've always been blue," I thought, "And I've just never noticed before."

And then I remembered how yesterday I'd been breaking in a new pair of fingerless gloves. At one point I'd got them wet- and clearly what had happened was that the dye had run.

Sounded like cheap obes otherwise that should not happen normally.

Ah well, no harm done. And I got a story out of it :)

At least it was an innocent explanation! :-)

I'm wearing the same gloves today- and I got one of them wet and- yes- my hand is blue again.

What a relief! I had a similar experience with "bleeding" after eating red velvet cake. I didn't know they relied on red dye for the coloration.

Whew...it's a relief it's only blue dye!
When I eat beetroot which I love, I tend to forget that what goes in red comes out red and it's a scare....kind of like Laura's red velvet cake episode.

The only way I'll willingly eat beetroot is if it's been roasted.

the yarn didn't get rinsed put it in water
with something to fix the dye like vinegar or lemon juice

or you want a whole pile of stuff blue
pop them in the wash.
then fix them?

Glad it was only a scare ;)
