ABC Wednesday

P is for...

Plaid
Patterson Blue
(Personal tartan)


I've been interested in plaids ever since I first discovered that the Scottish tartans each have their own names. I found a fascinating website, Scotweb, where you can look up any registered plaid, search for plaids based on your color preferences, build your own tartan outfit and so much more. I thought a kilt was just a kilt until I learned that there are 8 yard traditional kilts and 5 yard casual kilts. There are also fashion kilts, Irish kilts and Welsh kilts! And then the plaids. Hundreds. I had no idea there were so many designs until I started perusing this site. Here are just a few.

You can even make your own family tartan!
By the way, the little girl in your header is just beautiful. Such a sweet smile and whenever I open your site, she's the first thing my eyes get drawn to.

Wow! 8 yards of kilt! Somebody isn't having an easy time walking in that! Fascinating:)

I love them too! What stories they must have to go with them. They are so beautiful!

Even the five yard kilts are heavy, so the eight yard ones must require a load of muscles! This is a fine informative post.

On behalf of the Team, thank you for participating.

I must admit I am not fond of plaid but it is a good choice for P.

There are a lot of very lovely tartans there, and as you say a lot more lovely tartans not shown. My ancestor's tartan, however, is a nasty yellow! LOL!
