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.

Mackenzie Challenge Results

A total of 21 of our lasses sent in their guesses. Of that there were 12 who got a perfect score. They were: Eilis (vicjorob) and Suisan (knittingalone), Morven (BessE) and Muirne (bwarnergroup) of Clan Beauchamp; Monique (Moniquews), Nannag (LCBraun), Fiona (Cinnamonamon) and Lileas (Knitswithisis) of Clan Fraser; Mordag (abitknottie), Marsali (mommaowie), Joan (Vivian5), and Latherna (Cabrita) of Clan Murray. The Mackenzies did not participate in the challenge because they were the authors.

Most Dedicated: Nemetoma Beauchamp couldn't figure out where Hughey the Sheep came from and she said it "stumped me, I have never seen the name Hughey before and I couldn't get it so in the end I looked through 500 projects till he jumped out at me . . . Phew."

I hope you were inspired by some of the projects you saw during your adventures through Ravelry land.
