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 2 Results Post

My hand knit cloche getting more of a workout now than ever before! There were 12 individuals included in the hand-knit felted cloche drawing.

Joan (Vivian 5), Marsali (mommaowie), Eileen (justajenjen) and Latharna (cabrita) of Clan Murray; Mrs. FitzGibbons (jules 1960), Rhona (Rahrini), Mordag Elsbeth McLean (abitknottie) and Kinley (Rehnbo) of Clan Mackenzie; Sassenach (Sassenach), Frannsaidh Muir (CarmaFrancie) and Morgana (cluxewe) of Clan Fraser and Murron (lovestoknit) of Clan Beauchamp. Each one earned two additional points for their clan. These participants had perfect scores and earned 2 points for their individual Clan.

“Herring in many shapes and forms, and Claire launches into a description of the menu, which rather reminds me of the part in Forrest Gump where Bubba lists all the uses for shrimp.”
