Lots of greys and neutrals today, and I love it! I’ve been on a grey kick recently, maybe because the skies are full of grey these days. Get inspired to tackle a weekend yarn craft with one of these lovely ideas.

Doing this roundup every week means that I see quite a lot of the same types of patterns/ideas/etc. done about a thousand different ways over and over again. This week there were some really fun and different ideas shared on some of my favorite blogs. Add a little variety to your yarn crafting this weekend and give one of these new ideas a try!

Today’s Funkasonic knit along post is about the details. There are little details written into both Funkasonic patterns to help add some visual texture and strength to the finished pattern or help hide where the round begins. Use these tutorials to learn how to knit jogless stripes and work the linen stitch!  #funkasonickal
