My husband is a nut when it comes to teh national grid,  he loves anything electrical and so for xmas I decided to crochet a pylon.  I learnt a lot from this experience.  Mainly to never ever crochet a pylon again.



Although if he is a good boy next year I promised him i'd crochet him a substation.

The picture does not do this monster justice, its over a foot in height and was done over many nights.

I think perhaps he is the only man in the world with a cuddly pylon and the only man in the world who would actually want one.

Yes...it does sound like your husband is odd, but it also sounds like you love him a lot and like you have a sense of humor! Smiley  Hope he enjoys!
