im knitting the very tall socks from knitty http://knitty.com/ISSUEwinter04/PATTverytallsocks.html  i started with 90 stiches distributed on all 4 dpns and have decreased down to.. 54? however, almost all of these are one only two needles, with only 4 or so stiches on each of the other two... can i move these stiches onto a differant needle, say work with three now, or even just two?  it seems logical that i could, but this is my first project on dpns and its for a swap partner, so i dont want to dork it up. Tongue i know that after i work 60 some rounds even i will be turning the heel and have to switch up the stiches then, but will it mess up the sock if i do some switching now?
thanks Cheesy

As long as you know where your round begins, you can move your stitches any way you want.  Some folks even move their stitches every round to prevent ladders.  As far as how many needles to use...I find it easiest to spread the stitches evenly over three needles.
