I'm so glad you said this - it's exactly what I do and it makes a big difference! I guess it's just something I do without even thinking now that I knit with dpn's all the time, but IMO that is a great thing to tell anyone who is new to knitting with dpn's.

I don't think there is any other way to explain it, just to make sure that the needle on your left is sitting on top of the needle to it's left.

Thanks again, I'm glad I'm not the only one who does that!
