Hola. (First post with pics- please tell me if I'm doing something wrong.) I am new to dpn's and had planned on learning to knit a sock this summer, so I set out to start Silver's class when I saw this post. But I need a little help. I'm not quite sure what I'm doing wrong. I'm not sure how to divide the stitches, so when starting the heel my first row ends up on the wrong side instead of the right side.  Huh If anyone has done this before, any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

  I have no clue what you're doing, wrong or right, but I love the color you're using. 
I finally started on silver's dpn tute. I have cast on my stitches and finished my first round!

I've got about 1/4 " done on the first sock.  I'm only able to knit on it about an hour at the end of work.  I really like the way it's turning out.  I'm using a self stripping yarn in blues and browns,and I just love how it looks.  Only thing I'm concerned about is the fact that it looks kinda small, like maybe it will fit my 3 yo niece instead of me.  Cheesy Maybe it'll stretch!

Woo! I ended up frogging everything I had and redoing it up to the heel because of the confusion and some other mistakes. I figured out the problem and got the heel done, then... I finished my first sock! Thank you, Silver's sock class! I don't have a camera with me now, but I will post a picture of it soon. I used worsted weight yarn, and at first while doing the ribbing I thought it would be too small, too, but the sock fits my giant, size ten feet. Yes, I made some mistakes, and I don't like the yarn, but the sock is functional, so I'm happy. Grin

Congratulations! Are you going to make a second sock?

 I've been looking at the top of my sock thinking it looked small too.  I'm glad to hear it turned out all right!
