Outlander Adventures.. what happens when an 18th century experimental archeologist becomes involved with Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander Series!
Since I raise sheep I’ve created Outlander knitting patterns based on known 18th century pieces, including Lord John Grey’s Felted Mittens which were originally trade mittens sold up and down the northeast coastline in the 18th century, and poetry mittens, which were an art form all their own. Experiment with 18th century and easy to make soap, natural dyes, and heirloom gardening with 18th century vegetables .. you’d be surprised how the world of Outlander is relevant, fun, and incredibly useful, today.

Tamara Burke, for bits of homestead and farming lore, most particularly for her vivid description of a rooster valiantly defending his hens. — Diana Gabaldon, Acknowledgements, Written In My Own Heart’s Blood
