Outlandish Swap V: The Fiery Cross

Scottish clans were originally a Highland way of life. The Highland clan was, above all things, a family; a family in which everybody believed they were all, from chief to blacksmith, descended from one founder or progenitor. They regarded themselves as very close kinsmen. This Swap is dedicated to such clan families and will be organized into four clans.

I like these trivia rounds even though I missed the Clan sign up period! Will you be adding to the clans once the first round of swaps is over? I'd love to join next time!

We will be opening up for another round after this one, but we will have to determine dates for it. If you are not a member of ravelry yet you should join, because we are mostly based there. We might have a slightly different theme next time, we are working on villians of the series!
