You're using the contrasting, scrap yarn to hold the sts for the thumb. When you go back to the directions for the thumb, you can carefully pull out the scrap yarn and as you do that, st by st, pick up sts with two of your dpns, one needle for the top sts and one for the bottom sts. You'll have 6sts on one needle and 7sts on the other. Then you can continue the thumb directions, distribute the 13sts over 3 needles and pick up two sts in each gap between the original top and bottom sts.
