Not my FO, but have to share anyway
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:

http://www.ravelry.com/projects/Dean...-spinach-scarf

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.

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.

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.
