Which scarf do you like best?

Post by jtaylor » Mon Nov 26, 2007 7:36 pm

Simple question - which do you like best, and would you buy if you had a choice?

1. The college-style yellow/black longitudinal striped one
2. The knitted blue, with the yellow stripes at either end and tassles.

FYI:- The Tuck Shop sells the knitted blue ones, beautifully knitted by Mrs. Holdsworth I believe? £10 each....

I liked the college style one but it was way too short ... needed to be about half the length again. mind you, it's not like I'm really going to wear it again, would be a bit naff :)

I like the college one and have one in my cupboard with my broadie. Although i doubt i will wear it again as its itchy and not long enough to double up

Wool, every time. I seem to remember we tied knots in the end of wool scarves in order to weigh them down a bit so they wouldn't blow off you in the wind.

I'd really like a knitted one, Matt... If I weighed a specimen scarf, and sent a prepaid addressed envelope with a tenner, do you think your mamma would send me a scarf?

Memory for Hertford Girls - SWSNBN railing at us for draping our house-colour scarves over the coats hung on pegs, resulting in scarves on floor outside form rooms! (Much quivering with fury on her part! Much impassive staring back on ours!)

If, She hectored, we threaded the scarf throughthe sleeve of the coat as we took it off, the scarf would cling inside the coat.

Much as I resent SWSNBN for being Right about scarf conservation, I have done this ever since, and none of my scarves hung up in public places have ended up in Lost Properties or nicked!

Grr grr SWSNBN, but useful.

Kerren and I will both remember the scarves being given to us, and they were much appreciated. I don't think we had had anything like that before, had we Kerren?

Miss Jenkins has the excellent idea of our cross stitching our numbers, in a matching blue thread, in one corner of the scarf to mark them. This was far less conspicuous than white tapes sewn on by other houses! I think it may have been the only good idea that Miss Jenkins had in all my time in the school - so perhaps it wasn't actually her idea!

If I was going to buy a CH scarf, I think I'd want a woollen one. BUT it would have to long enough to double upand pop through the loop. I think I had a college style one at Hertford and a woollen one at Horsham. Don't know what happened to either.
