10 minute knitting

What can be knitted in only 10 minutes?

I am swatching to make a shawl gift for a friend of mine. I want it to be a surprise so I can't ask her what colours she likes or anything. I've decided on green, silver and blue to work with.
Shawl swatch

Hemp leaf
I can knit a whole leaf, shown here in Hemp.

Bead leaf
I can knit most of a leaf with beads, although I think I ended up making this one bigger than the other.

I can cast off a square from my knitting machine, shown here in Inca Cloud with some extra embellishmet: Katia duende, Rowan KSH and Rowan lurex shimmer.
I plan make lots of leaves and hand finish an enormous machine knitted rectangle.
