Close to the Ravelympic / Knit Olympic Finish Line

The spinning and dyeing events are both finished and posted. Now, I need to concentrate on the rest of the knitting event. Sock 1 is completed and sock 2 is started. I'm on the leg part already. I think I can finish by Sunday if I glue myself to my chair and just knit on it. This is definitely a challenge for me. Since I always take at least a month, and usually longer, to knit a pair of socks, this is a record if I can complete these in time.
I knit the leg a bit shorter on these and they fit my foot and leg perfect. I did change the pattern near the toe slightly. I didn't want the rib stitch on that part, so I did an extra 7 rows of stockinette instead. The yarn is Fiesta Baby Boom in "Raspberry Mocha". Here's a pic of sock 1:
