Third Time Lucky!

Well hopefully you guys might be reading this, my third attempt to get something on here!!! My computer hasn't been behaving! Just to say a HUGE thankyou for such a warm response to just titles so far!! I'm VERY excited to have found this place to share my knitting-related thoughts, joys and frustrations!! My mother taught me basic stitches when I was just into my teens, and I managed to put together a few scarves and a VERY basic sweater made from rectangles of garter stitch...I seem to remember it looking quite cool under dungarees (EEK!!!). A girlfriend of mine started to knit a couple of years ago, and I picked up some needles one evening with her and haven't stopped since!! I am now an obsessed sock-knitter!!! I've only been working with fingering weights so far, and I'm really keen to move onto more 'cosy fireside-kinda-socks', so if anyone could share a pattern for thicker yarns it would be very much appreciated! I trained in textile design at art school, and I'm finding the pattern maker inside me is being very drawn to FAIR ISLE, so if anyone has any info suitable for a beginner, again it would be very welcome!!! Sorry to go on for so long, but it is my first time!! So please be gentle with me!!!!
