picking up stitches using magic loop?

I'm making my first pair of socks and have been flying along using the Magic Loop method up to this point. I've just finished shaping the heel, and now I have to shape the instep.

Thus far, I've had no problems converting the instructions (written for DPNs) into Magic Loop, but I'm having trouble with this part:

With RS of work facing, and first needle, pick up and knit 18 sts along left side of heel. With Second needle, knit across 32 sts for instep. With third needle, pick up and knit 18 sts along right side of heel. Knit first 10 sts from heel onto end of third needle. Slip rem 9 sts from heel onto beg of first needle

Am I going to have to break out the DPNs for this part, or can I do it the Magic Loop way?
