Pretty Socks
I just checked that e-bay link and the yarn is actually 13.95 + 3.50 for shipping so you got an okay deal on yours. It is beautiful and what you have done so far looks great.
I wouldn't go back to fix a couple of errors. I would leave them and forget about it. Like you say, no one will see them.

lol...yeah, after I posted the link, I clicked it to make sure it worked and saw the $3.50 was shipping ...I just saw $3.50 at first and thought aw man, and I just spent $15.50! lol Guess that'll teach me to be a bit more observant! LOL

I'm used to frogging on straights and circs, but this is the first time I've used more than 2 needles at a time and I'm so nervous. I'm contemplating just leaving it as it is because honestly, it's not terribly noticeable, and, not many people would see the socks anyway...however, I notice it and know it's there and it's driving me nuts! Is it pretty nerve wracking frogging on 3 DPNs? If it is, I'll just leave it...lol
You don't have to rip it all out for just 2 sts. When you get to the stitch above where you purled, drop just that one, and fix it like a dropped st. Look at the first link under Fixing Mistakes here, http://www.knittinghelp.com/videos/knitting-tips - it's even the same kind of boo-boo you did....

For what it's worth, I once had a "horrible time" doing rib on dpn's...someone here (KH) suggested always do a purl on the last stitch of the needle..that way you can always start the next one (needle) as a knit so that "method" kinda always worked for me
