I use a large needle to pick up the loops from the hook or paper clip. With both loops on the needle, I use it to pull my nit picker thru the loops and complete my shorb loop. Obviously its a larger needle with a large eye which will accept the hook of the nit picker. With looser loops, you can just use the nitpicker to gather the loops. Some people are inserting a small loop (1-2 inch diameter) of backing into the loop prior to twisting or furling then use that loop to pull the nitpicker thru.
