This is my first time using DPN's, and I've cast on and spit the stitches between the needles.  Here's my question:  How exactly do I join the round?  Do I just pick up the first cast-on stitch (at the opposite end of the working yarn) and knit the two together, or is it something more complicated?  Thanks in advance!

Lord, show me your ways. Teach me how to follow you.  Guide me in your truth. Teach me. You are God my Savior.  I put my hope in you all day long.
-Psalm 25:4-5

PM me if you want to swap!  I need some stitch markers...

Finally got one...

If you have your stiches on 3 needles, made a little triangle out of them.  The first stitch you cast on will be the first one you knit into.  But your working yarn comes from the last stitch cast on.  This link explains it a lot better than I could and has good pictures.

the knitter's review method is one way to make the join seamless.  You could just knit into the first st, but be sure the cast on sts aren't twisted!  See the knittinghelp video on small circular projects (turn on the sound for her tips).
