Exactly what I do. Also, if you're only using 3+1 dpns (3 with stitches and 1 to knit with), try 4+1. That extra needle reduces the tension between the needles and also helps to minimize ladders.

Yes! Put knitting on four (4) needles. Knit with fifth. Everything seems to settle down then, or use two circular needles and divvy up the stitches based on the sense of the project. Knitting settles down re the pattern....what happens in your lap is unfortunate, especially when using more than one yarn. Reread my earthier rants and realized that in didn't say that I hold the yarn on my left index finger unless stranding, in which case right index finger gets to play.

I have no problem with ladders be it working with 2, 3, or 4 needles (sts on those needles).

I knit two sts from the next needle so the change is never in the same place. I do this all the way around, be it with circs or dps.

Say 5 sts per needle, so I knit 1-5, then first two from next needle. Now I need more sts on that needle, so I get them from the next (and the next and the next all the way around till finished.)
