I have no idea why they don't recommend knitting with the one - the thick & quick has a ton of knitting patterns created by it.
Why not look at tome of those and see if anything appeals to you. You'd have to do some fudging with the size to adjust to the chenille yarn since the thick & quick is much bullkier.
