Suzeeq, That's what I'm doing now with the crochet hook. Problem was that with using a giant needle, (size 15, not 13) I /had/ to move the stitches down to the tip just to fit the other needle between the stitches.
I'm using the crochet hook method, DogCatMom offered. I already have about 120 stitches. I'm using a size D crochet hook and it is working great. I'm not having any issues keeping the stitches lose enough to move up and down the shaft of the needle nor any issues fitting the hook between the stitches.
