Just knit those three, put your yarn between the needles in front and start purling. When you get to the end of the purls, put your yarn in back and knit.
If you're getting little gaps when you switch, try tugging that first stitch a little bit and keep your needles close together.
If you're getting eyelets and extra stitches, you're forgetting to move the yarn to it's proper position.

Hop aboard while we follow the cloud-covered van of knitting harmony, man!! Woooo!! --Hedgehog
