attaching stitches left on extra needles
I am fairly new to knitting. I know how to pick up stitches, but this sweater I am putting together has about 20 stitches left on extra needles on both front and back. The directions call to pick up stitches and knit, then knit the 20 stitches, then pick up and knit more stitches and knit, then knit the other 20 stitches... I don't think I can just pick up stitches, then slide on my leftover stitches, then pick up more because I'll have yarn dangling between the stretches.
