You did not.
Dpkg searches for local files only. If you had all the dependencies in that
directory, you could just (sometimes it's not that easy though):

# dpkg -i *.deb

But, since you need to download the dependencies from the repository, you
install your package with `dpkg -i', and then fix the missing dependencies with
apt. And here's where `apt-get -f install' enters the scene! Nothing wrong :)

Congratulations for your first package! ;)
