Yeah, it's weird but it seems larger dpns are harder. I tried some 8s for a hat and stopped. But I have no problem with 3s and 2s on my socks. I'm sure I'll get the larger ones when I feel like it though!
It certainly does help to 'rest' the needles on your lap or something but maybe we all do that with all the needles anyhow.

Here's a video from Knitty Gritty, its for making mittens, but there's some good basic dpn technique:

It gets easier the more rows you knit, the first few feels like you're wrestling with an ornery porcupine!

Thanks everyone! I think I've got it pretty well now, but am having some issues with the ribbing looking odd at 2 of the joined rows. I've posted the question in a separate thread.
