I had that problem when knitting my first pair of socks,
You knit the last and the first stitches together, so then your working in a circle,
Hope this helps,

When joining in the round your working yarn will be coming from your right needle. The loop part of the needles will be away from you as you will be knitting on the outside. Just slide the yarn toward the ends of the needles and just start knitting. Make sure the knitting isn't twisted first though!
Just thought of something...if you've never knit in the round..are you using circular needles?
