Can I make it?

Can I possibly make it for the Sockapalooza 4 deadline? This is the second pair of socks I'm making for my sock pal, so I do have something to send off. But I wanted this to be done, too. However, with just a week to go, I've only just turned the heel on the first Bayerische sock.

So many things have been happening lately. I had six teeth taken out, my braces got put on, I moved, I had people visiting, I've been working, and my new roommate moved in. I just haven't had a whole lot of knitting time lately. I don't know if I can finish this pair of socks in time to mail out by August 6th! I will try my best, but I fear I will let my sock pal down.

Today's plan? Knit like a demon. I want to at least finish this first sock, because I'm afraid I may actually run out of yarn!! Eunny wasn't kidding when she said that this pattern consumes yarn at a "fearsome" rate. I thought I would be all right with two balls of Lang Jawoll because my sock pal doesn't like the legs of her socks too long (only 4" to the top of the heel flap). However, I am a bit nervous now that I've barely started on the foot, and the ball of Jawoll looks distressingly small.
