First steps on the sock of doom

My first pair of socks, if I ever get to complete them. This is how far I got yesterday with sock #1. My assassin is in the US and I've pleaded for mercy (i.e. asked her not to use priority mail) to give me a chance of getting them finished. Imagine being knocked out without even getting to try the Kitchener stitch. I reckon I have 6-7cm of the foot left before I start the toe decreases but also can't find my tape measure to confirm this. But as you can see, the gauge is only approximate and I think these will end up as bed socks, so it might not matter if they're a teensy bit generous.
