Sorry for the double post but due to some ridiculously slow internet I wasn't able to add this into my post.
Also, if you make your pocket on the backside of the barrel you aren't setting yourself up for your second barrel at all, which is one of the purposes of using pockets. I also have never seen any runners form a pocket that way.
Some more advice- watch some people that you respect and see how they manuever a pattern. This helped me greatly, I was able to see what didn't work and what did work and able to mimic it.
