Examiner 1 thinks this is a nice swatch. Examiner 2 doesn't like the yarn it's made from, no matter how good the execution.

I haven't made too many comments on what I thought were judges' personal opinions because I realize that this process can never be made entirely, mechanically objective. But this one just really irritates me. My stated use was that this was for a child, and intended to be practical but not dreary. How many six-year-old girls willingly wear a scarf of plain, flat navy blue? And how many parents will give them ones of unwashable, shreddable, fire hazard eyelash? At the very least, there should be some constructive comment other than "ho-hum fabric."
