Sock rows on dpns
I'm having a major issue with knitting rows on socks with dpns. Usually I avoid the problem by knitting with multi colored yarn, but I can't this time. I need to be able to knit stitches that are on the same row from one needle t the next.

For some reason, the rows always end one row beneath the stitch that I made at the beginning of the row.

I cast one 40, and divide the stitches onto three needles 10-20-10 pattern. And then I start knitting on the first stitch cast on from the last, so the first stitch I knit makes the needles hold together in a circle. I assume that the break between the first and last needle is the marker, but that doesn't seem to be the case.

What am I doing wrong?

I'm not sure I'm understanding what your problem is. It sounds like your joining correctly.

When you knit in the round, you are really knitting in a spiral. The first and last stitches in the round won't line up perfectly since they are not the same row. Is that what you mean?

Just keep going - it'll look and feel rather odd at first.

Exactly. There's always an obvious one row difference seam. How do fix that, to make it even?

You don't. That's the nature of circular knitting; like Ingrid said, you're really making a spiral. It won't be noticeable and there's some tips for finishing up the BO (if it's on the cuff) that minimize the difference. If you're ending up at the toe, it won't matter, I think.

what redwitch said. there is a method i have read about where you switch a couple of loops where that row changes so the colors match up.
