I've mentioned in a few threads that I recently taught a co-worker to knit. If you are on Ravelry, you should take a peek at this scarf she just finished:

This is only her second FO, and I just taught her the basics-cast on, knit, purl, bind off. She learned to do the increases and decreases for this scarf on her own (with help from the videos here, I might add). Now she is starting out with cables. I only taught her how to knit a month ago! Pretty soon, I'm going to be asking her for help! :)

Can you guess from this post how thrilled I am about this? I love having another knitter at work to hang out at lunch with. :cheering:

That scarf is way too cool. The yarn is amazing. You people are so lucky with your yarn variety, the choice here in NZ is very limited.

Great scarf :thumbsup: You must be so proud of your protege! My friend turned me on to knitting and now the two of us are trying to convert the rest of our co-workers ;)

The scarf is gorgeous. Added it to my queue. I also have co workers who I knit with and more and more are asking to learn.
