Fills me with...

Ok, so I promised more, and here it is. I have a confession to make.

I love Glee.

There. I said it. But so does everyone else and anyone who says they don't has no soul. We're still on the first season here in the UK, and gradually everyone is going, "I am so embarrassed to admit this, but I love Glee." And then everyone else says with relief, "So do I!"

One of the biggest talking points of the show is Jayma Mays' wardrobe as lovable guidance counselor Emma Pilsbury. Finally, librarian-chic is cool, and some well-deserved glory goes to the humble cardigan. The clincher for me though is her adorable array of sweater clips:

Clearly I am not the first to notice these as evidenced in this post.

So I had a wander around Etsy, and I caved in.


These vintage clips came from the lovely Vintage Fifteen shop.

Now, here's the problem: I don't actually own a cardigan that requires or can accommodate sweater clips. Solution: knit one! Which leads me to another problem: which cardigan??? I have seen a few, but none so far that fill me with... well you know. Any suggestions?

I LOVE Glee! & my husband has come around to it too. Even his professor has admitted to liking Glee. I am completely with you on the Emma Pilsbury wardrobe! I made a sweater clip-esque cardigan a few years back, with buttons attached to snaps so the chain more snaps on rather than clips. I didn't even think of looking for sweater clips!

I knew I wasn't the only one who loves glee! It has the most ridiculous plot lines, but it is a musical after all :)

Your sweater is adorable! You're so clever making that chain yourself. I was thinking of doing something similar to yours, with the raglan sleeves, except full length. I think simple is the way to go to show off the clips!

Oh Glee. I still don't know if I can say "I like Glee", yet I find myself watching it every week. My cousins are going to see Glee "live in concert" sometime this summer. I can't imagine what that scene will be like. Can't wait to see what you come up with to go with your clips! (which are very cool, and very maf by the way)

C'mon you know you love it ;) I don't think I could handle it live in concert, but for an hour once a week on tv...
