You really do need something with two ends--you pick up the stitches with one end and knit from the other. If you had to, you could pick up the stitches with the point of the regular needle and then put them back on the working needle to knit them.

Hop aboard while we follow the cloud-covered van of knitting harmony, man!! Woooo!! --Hedgehog
