rows if you like longer socks.

You will have 3 open pegs on each side of your heel.
Reach inside the loom, and evenly distribute the
stitches along the edge of the heel, placing them onto
the empty pegs, including 1 peg on either side of the
empty pegs 4, 9, 13, and 24 which will now have 2 loops
to knit off as 1 loop.
Photo shows how your knitting should looks once the left
side of the heel stitches are placed onto the loom.
Peg 4 is now the beginning peg. You can return

simply knitting your first round to peg 1 only, then
continue knitting in the round until you reach your
desired foot length.
Remove by sewing yarn through each peg's loop, and draw
