UFOs

Nope, not talking about alien spaceships or Area 51 or anything scifi altho knowing me, I probably could (scifi geek at your service).
Nope, this time UFO means UnFinished Objects. You don't really want to know how long it took me to figure that one out on the knitpicks boards. I seriously couldn't understand what scifi had to do with knitting. Although to tell the truth, I am in a Stargate knitting group on ravelry. Yes, seriously.
Anyway, I thought I'd show my readers a couple of my own UFOs and maybe you can tell me about yours.
This is my first real sock.

Well, sort of anyway. I've got most of the cuff done. I have made exactly one pair of socks before and they were with worsted weight yarn on size 4 needles so they were more like slippers then socks. That's why I'm saying these are my first real socks. They're made of wool from the 100 pure wool company, a nice green and yellow.
This is one of the sweaters I'm making for my sisters for Christmas. It has one sleeve and I just cast on the second earlier today.

Surprisingly, it isn't taking as long as I thought it would to do the sleeves. I've done them a bit differently then the pattern as I was afraid I'd run out of yarn so instead I've picked up stitches around the armholes and knit down from the shoulders instead of from the wrist up. I just didn't want to make three sleeves regular length and then realize I didn't have enough yarn to make a fourth to the elbow. I figure even if they end up with 3/4 sleeves, it is better then that!
