What kind of stitch holder? It helps if you give us all the info in the first post.

To put the stitches on a needle you just stick your needle through the stitches. If it's on waste yarn cut the yarn and take it out after the needle is in. If it's a needle holder you can can pull it out stitch by stitch and put the needle in.

If you're using straight needles make sure you're needles tips are facing the right way to knit whatever you need to next.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

Yes, from the stitch holder you're really just slipping the sts onto the left needle, then kniting them. There are some stitch holders where you can use the holder itself as the left needle and knit the sts from the holder onto the right needle.
