Help with learning dpns
I've been knitting for a few weeks now. I've made a couple of hats and scarves. I want to learn dpns, but I can't seem to get it to save my life!

What needles, yarn weight etc. do you think is easiest to learn on? I've already got a set of 5 size 10 bamboo dpns and a set of metal sock dpns (sizes 0 and 1). Is it easier to start on larger or smaller needles?

I also have a hard time with knitting too tight. But when I try to loosen up then I leave huge ladders between needles. I have a hard time not twisting the stitches too. Mobius strip anyone? Thanks for any advice!
