I've done fair isle socks and my hint to you... work loosely or you won't get them on your feet!
Hi, Jan!

Would you recommend doing the socks a size larger or working with larger needles? I tend to knit loosely on most things but I can see where manipulating two yarns two handed could tense things up a bit!
