I started watching Shetland, a British TV series that takes place in the Shetland Islands (duh). I'm not sure which I like better, the accents or the knitwear.

Classic ribbed turtleneck pullover.

Shawl collar, drop sleeve cardigan.

Crew neck, raglan sleeve pullover. With cables!

I'm a little confused about what may be called a "jumper" or "Gansey" or "Guernsey" in the UK. No matter, I like all these sweaters. The show is pretty good, too.

I've been debating on watching that show... it's the kind of thing I have to watch when Dave's not around. And he's ALWAYS around lately.

I come from a Scottish Island originally and have never heard of jumpers being called anything other than a jumper, I had to google the other terms just now if that helps! I do know to ask for a sweater now I am in the US.
