I've never heard of a sock pattern telling you to do that. All the ones I've done have you leaving part of the stitches for the socks on the back needles, working back and forth and turning on the front needles for the heel shaping. I wouldn't cut it but keep following the other directions. The whole idea is that socks are all knit in one piece so they are smooth and comfortable. Cutting the yarn like that would give you a bump where you ended one piece of yarn and began another. That's not what you want to be standing on all day when you're wearing the socks.
