Outlander…What’s it about?
The story follows a married nurse Claire Randall who travels to Scotland with her husband.
Upon finding some ancient ruins, she time travels to Scotland in 1743 and meets up with the handsome Jamie Fraser.
Romance and adventure follow in all three seasons, going from Scotland to 1950s America – but I can’t say too much because it will spoil it for you!
I have bought the Outlander book series written by Diana Gabaldon so I can find out more about the story but I’m still on the first book.
Throughout the show’s seasons, Claire is often seen wearing a variety of knitted items, including – shawls, capes, cowls, and infinity scarves.

Inspired By The Outlander Series
If you haven’t watched it already – you really should!
The story is really great, with a bit of everything thrown in there – romance, action, plot twists, period costumes, and fantasy time travel.
I ordered the box sets for my mom for Christmas and she binged watched them over a weekend – she couldn’t get enough! (and she is a HUGE fan of Jamie of course!)
A bit of time travel and amazing costumes!
My favorite type of drama is a period drama and this series goes from various years (with the time travel) from early 1700’s Scotland to France ( in the court of Louis XV) and then to the USA in 1948.
The knitwear in the series is mainly seen in Scotland and as you can see from the image below, the Outlander costumes are just amazing!
