Slipping stiches to Yarn?
My glove pattern calls for slipping stitches to scrap yarn while knitting the fingers. Okay, I get that. But...Does anyone know an easy way to do this? I've tried a dpn, a crochet hook (which is what I used), but it seems very slow. Thank you for any helpful info.

I thread a yarn needle with yarn, slip the stitches to the needle and slip them back onto the yarn. If I'm doing 2 sets of stitches onto yarn and it's not getting in my way, I just use the same yarn in the needle to slip the next set onto and then cut the yarn between. That way I only thread the needle once. HTH I'm interested in seeing what others suggest.
