If you're doing a hundred stitches or multiple hundreds, you'll probably want some long circular needles. You can use them just the same as regular knitting needles but they will hold more stitches and will be easier to handle.

I'd love to know what your pattern looks like, is it online? Can you link to it or a picture of it? That would be great.
