New Knitter Sleeves Question
I have just started knitting real (more complicated that blankets and scarves) patterns!

I'm making the 7 hour toddler sweater on Ravelry for my little one (sorry, they aren't letting me put up the link because this is my first post - so strict!).

I'm having an issue figuring out the sleeves. I'm starting with 157 st. Then it says: Knit 25 sts and place on a holder or waste yarn. CO 2 sts and knit across the next 30 sts (first sleeve), CO 2 sts, Working with another set of needles and on these 34 sts, work in stockinette stitch for 30 rows.

What do I do with the 98 st that are not the 25 st on the waste yarn and not the 34 st I'm working? Do I put the 34 st on a new set of needles and leave the remaining 98 on the needles I had been using before?

Sorry if this is a total newbie question, I'm just not sure what to do now that I'm at the sleeves!

Thanks in advance!
