All I can think of at the moment is to say to be sure when you're knitting, that the needles point to you, or that the yarn comes from the back as you start. For the longest time, when doing socks, I would always seem to be knitting at the back of the work, rather than the front.
That being said, some people prefer to knit "inside out" and it works well. Just remember to flip it when you get to the heel, and when you're in the round again, you can flip it back to inside out.
"Be afraid of bears, of bungee-jumping, of faulty wiring in old houses, but never, ever be afraid of trying something in knitting." Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, Knitting Rules
