Pills are those little balls of yarn that inevitably develop on sweaters because of friction and washing.  They tend to make sweaters look unkempt and old, but here's an easy trick to get rid of them.

1.  Start with an old (but clean) razor.  You'll want the blades to be somewhat dulled to prevent slicing into the actual garment.

2.  Lightly brush onto the sweater in one direction.  DO NOT grate it back and forth or press down too hard, or else you might cut into the knit.  

3.  Use small, brisk motions and you will start to see fuzz accumulate.  Work in small patches as you go down the sweater.  It's the same concept as using a lint roller.

Hopefully you can see the results between before and after:
