Jumping for Jumpers

I received three new sweaters for Christmas. And I have since had a few Australian and British friends tell me they like my jumper. Of all the Queen's English idioms I've heard, I never knew a that "sweaters" were "jumpers."

I know they mean it as a compliment, but I can't hear "What a nice jumper!" without feeling a little humiliated.

Hey Greg,

Have you seen this ad from Pringle sweaters of Scotland?

I think you'll find it wonderfully relevant to your jumper situation.
