I keep reading blog posts by folks of the British persuasion talking about knitting "jumpers."
At first, I thought, OK... I'm not much of a skirt person myself, and I haven't worn a jumper since I was 8 years old, but hey, maybe it's one of those weird British fashion things like hats.
|Seriously?!? This is high fashion?!?|
But then people started talking about knitting jumpers for men. Hmmm... at first I thought they meant some sort of kilts or something...
But seriously, do men outside of Scotland really wear kilts? And can you really knit plaid?
Or are men in the UK just wearing skirts these days? I mean I know fashion is different "across the pond" but really?
Finally today I couldn't take it anymore and I looked it up. So here's the deal... In British English a "jumper" is a sweater.
Good GAWD! What's that they say... two people separated by a common language?
