transferring stitches on 3 needles
I'm using the pattern North Country Cotton Baby Socks. After casting on 24 stitches, the directions read.... divide evenly onto 3 needles. ok.... does it matter which end I use in removing the stitches. I know the last 8 will remain on the last needle. I am a continental knitter... and made these before.... over 3 years ago, so I'm running into issues....
Also.... I like using stitch markers... Then do I place the stitch marker before I begin the first round or after the first round?

Thank you in advance. cair

Nope, it makes no difference since you'll be knitting from the same working yarn anyway.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

Agreed. On the stitch marker, since it's difficult to keep the stitch marker on the end of a dpn, you could place it one stitch after the beginning of the round or one stitch before the end of round, as you prefer.
