Outlander Yarnspiration

I am obsessed with Starz new series Outlander, based on the books by Diana Galbadon. I saw her speak at the Washington DC/LOC Book Festival a few years ago. I had seen the books in stores, but not read them. When I heard they were set in Scotland, I was suddenly interested. I still haven’t had a chance to read the books yet, but I am loving the series…but not for the reason you might think.


Yes, the Scotish men in kilts are awesome, and the idea of time travel is kinda cool, but really it’s the fashion, or more specifically the knitwear that Claire Randall (and other ladies wear). I am particularly enamored with the chunky grey cowl Claire dons in several episodes.



Claire also wears, what looks to be a double-sided cowl (I’m not completely sure): one side knit, the other fur.


She has some lovely capelets as well:


And, last but not least, cabled fingerless gloves:

I may have found my Craftolution for 2015…
