Make sure you're knitting into the first cast-on (the tail end), wrapping the working yarn from the last cast-on.
Ugh right now i hate dpns too...my first stitch is a little loose, so i have a bit of a gap...that kinda sucks...and i'm afraid my stitches might have been twisted...i'm gonna give it a few rows before i rip it just to make sure it won't work out. 
Advise...(and it clearly states this in the directions) make sure your first stitch joining the round is as taught as possible to avoid gaps
one day we'll all look back on our first pair of socks and laugh

yay, I'm a sock virgin too!!  Cheesy  I've got my dpn's and luscious soft merino yarn, so can't wait! Never used dpns before, so bit scared!!

ha! I'm quoting myself. .. anyway have decided to dive right in the very deep end and knit the 'hedera' sox from knitty... we'll see how it goes, I quite like using the dpns actually, so far so good!

So i've started my socks...i'm like on the third row...and i'm going to have to rip it...i just counted the stitches and 2 of the 3 sides are fine...but on 1 side it seams i like to add stitches...i'm assuming it's suppose to be the 22 stitch side, and i have 28.  HA. 
Let's try this again Tongue

I started mine. I am somewhat following one of the sock patterns from my Nancy Bush book. I cast on and did six rows of k1p1 rib and am now working on stockinette. I'm using some yarn that I dyed myself. I figured test yarn for test socks.

Let's put the FUN back in dysfunctional!!

I've never done socks before either. Iam going to try the knitty Hedera socks. They look challenging but I think I can handle it. http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEspring06/PATThedera.html
