isn't it also called tunisian crochet? I've also seen it called "crochet-on-the-double" in some Annie's Attic catalogs from the 90's. I have 2 or 3 of them, I found them in the clearance aisle at my Michaels and bought one of G, H and I think I... I've been practicing with a simple scarf pattern. it is interesting, and makes a nice thick fabric.
nexstitch.com offers patterns for tunisian crochet, and you might want to check e-patternscentral.com (not free) I think they sell most of the patterns for Annie's these days.
did I say one project at a time?
