When I'm knitting on DPNs, I put a rubber ponytail holder on one end of the needle to mark the beginning of the round.

It's black, so it may be a little hard to see here:

I really appreciate all the great tidbits of wisdom from you all. What I decided to do is put the marker before the last stitch and its working pretty well.

So far I'm not getting any ladders, just making sure I keep those first few stitches on the needle on the tighter side and it looks pretty even. I've only gotten about 2.5 inches on the cuff done. Been real busy with work and we're moving too so, hehe..lots to do. :D

Thanks again for all the help!
