Iíve used a 9in needle before and itís not really that different than reg circs if youíre doing the short row heel then place markers and knit back and forth like you normally would. if your doing the gusseted place half the sts on a holder and start the heel flap as normal, when you finish turning the heel and have to pick up the sts for the gusset part you will have to squeeze the sts on the needle a bit until youíve decreased back to your normal number.
I was nervous at first but one thing I have knitting in general is to just go for it when you run into a spot that is kind of confusing you can kind of picture where you need to go next.

And as always if you have a question, you know where to find us.
