New Project pattern suggestions

Hi Guys,

I'm about to finish my first scarf and my first hat.
I'm looking forward to my next challenge. I'm a total beginner, but I like challenging and interesting patterns.

Can you guys recommend some cool patterns for me to try?
I would like to try doing comfy socks next
I bought extra thick gray yarn...

If you have access to Knitting Without Tears, Elizabeth Zimmermann gives really good tips on some outdoorsman socks that are easy to understand. If your yarn is a bulky spin, I recommend size 7 needles as they give a fairly tight gauge and are still pretty easy to work with. Hope this helps. Books, knitting, cats...Life is Good.

There is actually a pattern called "Campfire socks" that is pretty simple and knits up really well, I can email it too you if you want...
