I've been enjoying the new Starz series Outlander, based on Diana Gabaldon's book.
To be honest, I got bored with the book. I loved the concept, time travel is one of my favorites. Add magic stone circles, Scottish Highlands and political intrigue and you've got me! Alas, the story wandered a bit too much for me and I found the ending incredibly predictable.
As you can imagine, the costumes provide lots of inspiration for crafters! I've been inspired by some of the fingerless gloves and "wristers" (wrist warmers aka a tube that can be pulled down over the hands) as shown here.
First is a wrister in silk/cotton blend Rowan Summer Tweed - Toast, a tube worn over the wrist that can be pulled down over the hands. But, I did leave thumb slits in mine as an option. It is worked flat and seamed.
The second is a fingerless glove, with a formal thumb gusset. It's also a silk/cotton blend, Knit One Crochet Too's Cozette - Moss. It's worked in the round.
Add a tunisian crochet tam, a cabled scarf... and I am ready to join Clan Mackenzie! Just don't tell my Edinburgh ancestor John Knox. ;o)
Here are a few more photos of these projects...
