I just made a scarf with size 35 needles.  I had finished a big project and the immediate gratification of the scarf on size 35 was amazing!  Perfect inbetween project until I was ready to start something new. 

Any ideas or good patterns you've found for using these big fat needles?  I'd like to use them again, but maybe for something other than a garter stitch scarf!

Ponchos!
You basically knit two big rectangles (very quickly) and then sew them together.

What sort of yarn are you using?  The really BIG stuff?

Thanks for your poncho idea!! That sounds fun!! I made the scarf out of some bulky Lion Brand stuff I had.  Wool Ease Thick and Quick is the name of it.  Nothing fancy, but it's pretty soft and warm for the $$.

Rowan's book called "big just got bigger" (I think that is what it is called) does lots of patterns for large needles and yarns.  Hats, capettes, bags, cardigans etc ... very interesting!

I've made several things from this Rowan book including the capelet & one of the bags and they were fairly easy. I highly recommend it!

Blankets?

Also, if you use a super bulky weight wool and double strand it, you could make a bag to be felted up quickly....

There's a herringbone scarf pattern out there that I'm about to knit, as soon as I get the needles:

I concur!  I made the capelet from the book and it turned out fabulous!
