Some may feel differently, but for me, I think size 2's would have been difficult to work with if it were my first time to try dpn's. :?? That may be just me, though.
By the way, before I could afford to purchase needles, I made my first few pair of dpn's out of dowel rods, following Amy's video instructions here (http://www.knittinghelp.com/knitting/basic_techniques/misc.php) (bottom of page).

Silver's Sock Class (http://www.cometosilver.com/socks/SockClass_Start.htm) is an excellent tutorial for learning to knit on dpn's, even if you don't wish to make socks.
This (http://www.royea.net/sockdemo1.html) is also a great tutorial for using double pointed needles. Her sock pattern is super simple to follow, even for a beginner.
Both sites offer good quality step-by-step photos.
