Progress on Sock

Hi guys,
I made some modifications to two patterns and melded them together in this sock. Originally, it said to begin and end each row with a purl stitch. Even though it can be done, I really dislike starting a row in the round with a purl stitch; just my personal preference. So, I just moved the side cables closer to the center main cable and added three stockinette stitches on either side and decreased the purl stitches accordingly. Here is the result.

Red Dye Bleed

A friend of mine has a sweatshirt given to him by the Carpenters back in the 1970s. It's a white cotton sweatshirt with the Carpenters' logo stitched in red. Over the years, the red dye has bled down and has given the area under the logo slightly pink for a couple inches. Does anyone know how he might be able to get the pink bleed out without damaging the sweatshirt or the logo?
Thanks.
