insert the needle from right to left asx you go across the row. you could use a circular needle to pick up around the whole sock as they can rest on the cable.
Alternatives if it a simple pattern (like stockinette) then you could just drop thos stitches off the needle, run them down to where you made a mistake and then use a crochet neddle to work them back up properly.
