You'll find a way to work the extra needles. It takes some coordination at first to figure out what to do with them all, but after a while they just sort of hang there and you don't even pay attention to them. I sometimes will hook the two unused needles with my pinkies, but more often than not I'm mostly unaware of them. You could always try Magic Loop as well. Keep at it. It's a new skill and after you get used to the physicalness of it your hands will be more comfortable with this new task. Like any skill it takes time to get used to the new physical sensations.
