Binkin gave great advice!

I love my bamboo dpns, much easier than metal. Tho there are some yarns that the metal work nicely with. But I digress.
I had gotten a fat little knitting FAQ book at the library when I first started knitting, I can't remember the name now, but if I do I will post it. One suggestion in there was to lay out the needles on a pillow on your lap to orient yourself at first.

I also hold my needles like Binkin said, and tighten up at the beginning and end of the needle, and I don't even knit loosely.
Like all things, it gets easier with practice. My first dpn project were straight tubes (only I call them "armwarmers", lol) and it really gave me good practice!

See, I like knitting with sets of four better. It's tidier for me to only have a little two-pointed triangle in the back of my work than to mess with the rest of a square.

But that's just me.
