loose ladders with dpns
okay! i've had it! my socks are not happy!

i'm working on my first pair and every time i switch needles (dpns), i end up with very loose stitches, resulting in a rather distracting ladder. i've tried to pull my yarn tight after the first (and second) stitch but am still seeing it. any suggestions?!
