Monk socks update

I spent several very intense hours yesterday working on these. I finished the foot, rounded the heel and am a couple inches up the leg of the first. I am still not a fan of toe-up, I think it"s to do with not knowing when I"ll end, which I have a much better grasp of top down. I also just plain like top-town construction better, especially in regards to heels (although I gather there are toe-up techniques for gussetted heels, I have not seen any of them). However, I am glad to have had this pair to work on to learn more.

I've heard so many good things about making toe-ups so you can knit to the end of the yarn... but for the first sock, how do you know you've used half?
