Carnegie Tartan Plaid - Linda Clifford
My former dance partner contributed a bunch of Scottish recipes, several years ago. I am an actual graduate of the Carnegie Institute of Technology, and entitled to wear the Carnegie Tartan, so I have some small affinity for Scotland. I don't really see any reason to take away these particular recipes.... The Scots make great wool goods, Charles Rennie Mackintosh was the Bomb, and their Terriers can't be beat. Their cooking is something else.... Italian cooking is like the Seaforth Highlanders; Scottish cooking is like the Italian army.
Carnegie Ancient Tartan - Scotland Shop
At dinner, Margaret wore the same red Carnegie tartan her grandmother favored, and around her neck she wore her great-grandmother's watch on a chain. Margaret seems to have inherited the same twinkle in her eye that her great-grandfather was said to have, though what she knew of him as a young girl was limited. Her grandmother didn't talk much about her parents.
The Carnegie Mellon athletic teams are nicknamed the "Tartans" as a nod to Andrew Carnegie's Scottish heritage. A tartan is often misrepresented as a fierce warrior from either the Asian tundra or Scottish highlands. In actuality, it is a twilled woolen fabric with a plaid design. The Scottish terrier mascot performer sports Carnegie tartan attire, while the graphic mascot is wearing a plaid scarf around its neck. So what's the difference between tartan and plaid?
You'll know it's a tartan if...
• "It's a check or pattern in a variety of colours in woven fabric in which bands of colour are repeated in equal proportion in warp (running lengthwise) and weft (running across)."
• "Each stripe of the warp crosses every stripe of the weft, so when vertical and horizontal stripes of the same color cross, the result is solid color at the point of intersection."
• "The arrangement of colored threads is the same in the warp as in the weft."
