Let's see. To avoid holes in the gusset, I pick up one more stich that the pattern specifies, then K2 tog or SSK on the next row.

I am still a newbie, but after getting past my first pair and moving on to the next:
1) no matter what the first pair look like, keep knitting and finish them. You learn alot
2) try different types/sizes of yarn. One might just click with your style of knitting
3) try to top down and the toe up method. One might be perfect for you while the other might just not be your thing.

Yea for you! If you're new on DPs, remember to keep the first stitch or two on each needle tight so you don't get ladders, and when you pick up those gusset stitches, knit into the back. That helps avoid little holes, too. And like Knittykim said, just keep knitting and have fun!
