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.

Be sure to include the image and not just the link for the image. You get a bonus point for including ONE knitting pattern link from Ravelry. (All items are found within Section 8.)

Muirne, Sineag, Imogen, Eilis, Ealaisad, Morven, Lady North Facing, Bree, & SuisanBlue text denotes first 10 responders who also had "perfect 10" scores (and thus earn their team an extra point), and bolded lasses are also "perfect 10" scores, who are entered into the drawing.
Additional points are awarded to:
Caireann Murray, for being the early bird
Zella Murray, for being the sneaker, with our best time yet: 11:59pm!! No beating that one!
Caireann Murray, Muirne Beauchamp, Seonag Makenzie & Ide Mackenzie for answering all 18 questions correctly!

Mackenzie: 115 + 4 (first responders) + 2 (perfect 18) + 5 (challenge winner) = 126
Beauchamp: 71 + 2 (first responders) + 1 (perfect 18) = 74
