I was trying to think of a name for a crochet blog as my blog has been taken over by my crochet ...I typed in Zen Crochet to see if it was taken and this reference to an artist, Zen Parry who did a crochet performance art piece using a big hook in 2005 came up
"She uses Terphane, a clear plastic rather like the stuff that comes around flower bouquets. She unspools it from a 10-mile-long roll, twisting it into a crude yarn.
Her crochet hook is comically large. With it she creates one-meter-square afghan squares — about one every four hours. She needs 64 of them to cover the floor and two walls."
