Two at a Time, Magic Loop, Heels

I've seen folks asking how to work heels TAAT magic loop, so I made notes of how I do it as I knit through my last set of heels. I keep my instep stitches on one needle, and all the heel/gusset stitches on the second needle, regardless of what the pattern says. Just makes me happy 

Work both legs TAAT
Work flaps back and forth, TAAT
Turn heel 1, leave second unworked on needles
Pick up stitches (I use a dpn to pick up the stitches) and work first side of gusset, so working yarn is ready to proceed with instep stitches
Work heel 2 turn
Pick up stitches and work second side of gusset, so working yarn is ready to proceed with instep stitches
Work instep 1
Work instep 2
Pick up and work third gusset section
Work sole 1
Pick up and work fourth (and last) gusset section
Work sole 2
Then you’re all set to carry on gusset decreases and finish socks
