Approaching the finish

Well, with Socktoberfest activities, I've redirected my knitting into my socks :)
I'm fast approaching the end, with maybe a few more rounds to go before the toe decreases.

Question for you all who do top down socks (I rarely do, because I have such a hard time figuring out the whole fitting part, I love being able to try on my socks as I go) - Do you do your measuring by putting the sock on? Or by estimating it against your foot by pulling the knitting tight (tight enough for the fabric to be laying flat, but not really stretched out).

These socks will be my 4th pair - and my 2nd pair of cuff to toe...the first pair are just a mite short, but still wearable.

I've only made a few pairs of socks, all top down so I'm not highly experienced. But so far, yes, I measure by putting the sock on.
