Here are a couple of patterns that I've used super-bulky yarn for, with great success:
Royal Mile Cowl - it's written for bulky yarn, but I had no issues with super bulky. I cast on the number of stitches called for in the pattern, but did fewer repeats because I didn't want it to be too wide. Turned out really nicely.
Also check out patterns for slippers; there are some out there that call for bulky/super bulky yarns. I've made a pair of these with super bulky: Family Foot Warmer Slippers . If I recall, I think I had to size down when I used the super bulky yarn; I would normally be in the medium size range, but with the super bulky yarn, I knit the next size down and they were good.
That Wool-Ease Thick & Quick yarn gets softer after it's washed, so anything like scarves, slippers, etc. would be good uses for that yarn.
I know you said you weren't keen on knitting a blanket with it, but because it's machine washable/dryable, it does make good blankets. If you run out of options, you could always knit up a few small pet blankets and donate them, it'd be a quick knit with that bulky yarn.
