Flame wave socks by Ann Budd

I have a situation that I'm not sure what to think about!!??? I purchased this yarn from Posh Yarn. It is Lucia 4ply sock weight in color way Sizzle specifically to knit this pattern and here is the problem that I am having.

In this picture you don't see any problem other than a beautiful design.

but look farther and please offer advice

These three pictures show how the yarn has faded just by being knitted and the color is ending up on my fingers. I love the yarn and it is making a beautifull sock but has anyone ever had this problem before???? What do you suggest I do to keep it from further fading/bleeding. I don't want to end up with orange feet or shoes??!!!!!

Yes she is.

Dee, thanks for everything. When I'm able to knit agin I'll let you know what happens.

Thanks again. I guess I get to be a yarn stalker the rest of the week.
