knitting in the round question
Okay, I've knitted in the round on dpn's successfully before, but this time I'm having major issues. I'm knitting socks using Paton's Stretch Socks yarn. First time using this yarn. When I join the rounds I knit the first two stitches tight to make a solid join, yet by the time I've knit around all of the needles there is a 1/2 inch gap that has developed. I've never had this happen before, and I realize this is stretchy yarn, which is why I'm pulling those first two stitches so tight. Any suggestions would be a real help! This is supposed to be relaxing!
