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.

Each clan is responsible for writing the challenge and sending it to Kellan/knitmo for her to post on the blog. After the challenge is complete, the clan score the results, send answers and the results to Kellan/knitmo for the winner's name to be drawn and posted on the blog.

Best of luck Lassies, and enjoy plotting your round of the games.
