You may want to take a look at
http://matplotlib.sf.net/tutorial.html#lineprops which shows several
ways of setting linewidths and other line properties. In addition to
the way Gary showed, you can also use keyword arguments
plot(x ,y, linewidth=2.0)
The default linewidth is controlled by the lines.linewidth property in
your matplotlibrc file -- see http://matplotlib.sf.net/.matplotlibrc.
