Katy, you may be working on tiny needles since you're knitting baby items? I don't know if the size makes a difference or not, but I know that when it came to learning to knit as well as to crochet, I was never able to get the hang of it before I attempted projects using large needles and hooks. For that reason, I decided to try my first dpn project on larger dpn's. Mine weren't really large, but neither were they tiny. I think I'm working on 5's. I'd have preferred starting on even larger ones, but that was the largest I owned, and just lucked out in finding them at an estate sale, since dpn's aren't available to me locally.

Honestly, I'm the type that has spent my whole life (49 years!) giving up on anything that really challenged me. I decided at the end of last year that this would be the year I'd knit, come h*ll or high water! I was absolutely determined, and determined to be able to do more than just scarves-hence my attempt with the dpn's. I am truly amazed at how quickly my hands fly along with them now, compared to just last Friday night when I first picked them up, and I assure you it isn't because I'm one of those people who is a natural, or catches on to things quickly, 'cause I AIN'T! :rollseyes: So, I just KNOW that if I can do this, anyone can!
