One of the concepts I've held firmly in my noggin (right or wrong) since I first started knitting socks is that anywhere there's a join, if it isn't smooth it could become a pressure point and rub a sore spot on the wearer's foot. Also, it can create a weaker spot in a sock that will get a lot of wear, constantly rubbing inside a shoe.
So I avoid anything that says I have to cut the yarn mid sock. I've never seen a pattern that says to do that but I can envision that some patterns might call for it, but I'd never do it. I'd rather be off a row or half row than have woven in ends in the body of a sock.
That might just be me, but other than having to add another ball of yarn or cutting out a damaged or weak spot and reconnecting the ends I wouldn't do it just to follow a pattern.
Good luck with however you decide to handle it. Please let us know how it goes!
