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.

Round 1 Results

As expected I did have to whip out the hand knit, felted cloche to determine the winner of the round. This little gem is a UGH! that has not been added to Ravelry. I apparently have a large head. The kids use it as a purse. However, my 2-year-old daughter, Edie, didn’t mind modeling it.



Participants in the hand-knit felted cloche drawing: Murron (lovestoknit) and Morven (bessE) of the Beauchamps; Frannsaidh Muir (CarmaFrancie) of the Frasers; Mordag Elsbeth McLean (abitknottie), Kinley (Rehnbo) Catrionia Duncan (Neila) of the Mackenzies; and Senga (robyn), Latharna (cabrita), Ros (Margeco) and Marsali (Mommaowie) of the Murrays. These clan members had perfect scores and earned 2 points for their individual clan.

Here's proof I included all of the names in the drawing:




My other 2-year-old, Ian, selected the name from the hat, and felt a need to taste the paper.




Winner: Murrion (lovestoknit) She earns an additional 5 points for Clan Beauchamp.

Clan Standings: After 1 Round
Beauchamp: 72
Fraser: 40
Mackenzie: 52
Murray: 72


Additional awards: (for bragging rights)
Early Bird Award: Senga of Clan Murray. She submitted her answers first. Her e-mail was dated 11:24 a.m. Sept. 10. That my friends, is just under 12 hours after I posted the quiz. Go Senga!
Sneaker Award: Caitlin of Clan Fraser. She submitted her answers last. Her e-mail was dated 9:37 p.m. Sept. 15. That is just about 2 hours before deadline.
The BS Award: Mrs. FitzGibbons of Clan Mackenzie for her most creative response to Question No. 3: “Ah Jamie was the passionate stallion that conquered her desire and Frank was the plow horse--he got the deed done thoroughly but without any fireworks.(ok so I don't know, but I had to put down something!)”

Statistics:
25 of 36 participated in Highland Games Round 1, that’s 69 percent. (Remember the clan chieftains are excluded from playing. We organize, you play.)
10 people got every question right or 27 percent.
10 people were stumped by Question No. 3 – regarding Claire’s description of her lovers, that’s 27 percent. However, many people figured it out, and included the direct quote from the text. Hint, the answer is in the “honeymoon” section.
Clan Beauchamp had 89 percent or 8 of 9 members participate, earning 72 points
Clan Fraser had 56 percent or 5 of 9 members participate, earning 40 points
Clan Mackenzie had 56 percent or 5 of 9 members participate, earning 52 points
Clan Murray had 78 percent or 7 of 9 members participate, earning 72 points

The Murrays are quiet, dependable and apparently know their Outlander. With four of the seven clan members in the final round/drawing makes them a force to be reckoned with. The Murrays are subtle but effective.

No, Wee'll beat you both. Clan Murray may be subtle but Clan Beauchamp be fearsome and relentless. We always get what we want.
