There is no strand there; I would have to start a new one, but all the videos I've seen about joining yarn are about joining in the same place where the old strand is and knitting both strands together for a few stitches. To start at the boot edge I would not have any strand to begin with.
If the yarn is in the middle of the row how did you get to the end if you cut the yarn? I often start a new yarn in the middle of a project (by choice). No matter where you start you'll need to just start knitting with the new yarn and you can weave in the ends later. I loosely tie the two ends together normally. I'm still trying to figure out how you cut the yarn in the middle, but are at the end...
