I bought some Lion brand speed stix to make an afghan for grandma and grandpa for their 65th wedding anniversary.  I've seen a book with some patterns for the speed stix, but really haven't seen much else.  Any idea where I can find more patterns?  I'm not a good enough knitter to make up my own.

The Lion website has several patterns for using these big needles. Do a pattern search under Speed Stix, or Quick, and there's some listed in the Homespun patterns.

I found those, and am actually planning on making a couple of the afghans.  I really want to make a sweater, though.

Hmmmm, the Twinkle Knits books use chunky yarn; don't know if the needles are that large or not. You could go to ravelry.com and join, then use the pattern search to look for sweaters, specifying needle size or gauge, and see what comes up.

I was going to suggest the Lion Brand website as well. Also, check out Ravelry.com. I do have a book that uses a lot of chunky yarn but not sure if it uses the big speed sticks. Speed Knitting (can't remember the author).
