Nicely done!  It looks like you are a very very even knitter!  good job.  My first few things that I tried were all over the place gauge-wise.

if you can't be a good example then you'll just have to be a horrible warning.

Toot away! I decided to try an knit a week or so ago, and I am giving up. I thought sewing took patience. I am all about instant gratification! Smiley So, I now have a really cute knitted headband! Smiley

Your scarf is going to be awesome! You will be wishing for the cold to come so you can show it off! Smiley Hooray! TOOT TOOT

when I started my job in November was the first time I really knit in "public".  At first some of my co-workers were interested and some were mocking.  "Isn't that a granny thing to do?"  "You're not old enough to knit" (I had just turned 34 btw...) "Are you pregnant"

NOW, the mocking boys have ALL asked me to make something for them, or for their girlfriends... 

WHO is laughing NOW???  (Me.) (I got paid) (hahaha)

Keep it up.  Soon your sister will want to learn for herself, especially as she sees you turn out really great finished projects and try new things.

that looks fantastic. My first project was a HP scarf as well, and it was such a good thing to start with, since it took forever and I got *really* comfortable with the knit stitch. Good luck on knitting in the future, and I hope you post a picture of the finished scarf!
