This book by Vogue knitting http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS...marterbooks-20
has a lot of patterns you might like. I've also used super bulky yarn to do an afghan (pattern in Creative Knitting magazine, not sure which month). My swap pal gave me some Scheherazade yarn (see http://www.fiber2yarn.com/catalog.php?item=2956
) which I made into a scarf (cast on 8 stitches, knit one row, knit next row wrapping yarn around twice - repeat these two rows until scarf is the length you want).
