|Carolyn the double pointed needles allow you to knit in a circle with very few stitches. The best way to start is to cast on all the stitches on one needle then divide on the other 3 or 4 depending on how many you are using. There will be one needle left free of stitches to knit with. Be sure not to twist your stitches when you join just like you would when making a circle in crochet.
Knitting in a circle means no seams in your socks except at the toe if you knit from cuff to toe. Not sure on the toe up ones as I've not done those yet. Trish can help with that one.
