shortest longest sock in the world

Well, we're at the tail end of the 4th of July!  I am still awake because people are still shooting off fireworks in my neighborhood.  I feel that I've made good use of the time, though, I've been knitting, knitting, knitting!  So the longest sock in the world part 2 is turning out to be much quicker.  Hurrah!   I think the momentum from finishing the first sock is propelling me :)  It's like, the first one just dragged on and on and I finished and it was like YES! I wanna do another one!  And I felt like I had just accomplished something great!  So anyway that's good news because so far I haven't suffered from "second sock syndrome" which is where some people finish the first and then dread having to do another so then just don't.
I know the lighting is awful here, but it's super late so no natural light to be had.  I put the socks next to each other so you could tell how far I've gotten just this week!  You can kind of see the thin light blue line which is the waste yarn that will become the afterthought heel.  Soooooo, that means I'm officially at the half point!  The striping is just a skotch* off from the first sock but it's so close!  The first toe started on green and the second on the periwinkle color.  Oh geez I'm just rambling on because I'm so tired!  Um and it's now the 5th of July so I think I'll call it a night.

*PS Skotch is a Scott-ism.  It means just a little bit.  I don't think it's a real word, he pronounced it sk - oh- ch.  Not scotch like the alcohol or tape or Scottish.
