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.

****edited to add the drawing information****
22 Names were put in the hat...a very special hat! Knit for me as a surprise by one of the Lallyclickets from the Ladies of Lallybroch, 5 1/2 years ago -- before I knew how to knit!! And the blinking boy in the photo who chose the winner was the one who wore it as an infant. :)

On to the drawing...And the winner is.... Ide Mackenzie!!! Congrats! You've won your clan an extra 5 points! :)

I don't know why he kept blinking like that....lol
