I tried my hand, literally, at finger knitting*. You basically turn your hand into a loom, by the way you wrap the yarn around your fingers. After 10 rounds or so you will see the work elongating. Pull the work from the bottom and a cool looking column of yarn will become noticeable. After another 20 rounds, you will easily see how the work can be used as a scarf or even a belt. Worked in the right colors this quick project, I made something in under an hour, can be given as a present to male or female.

I occasionally do crafty displays at work. A teen worker taught me how to make large paper snowflakes last week. (Normally the colors used are white, a light blue, or a lavender.)
African-American History Month is now here and I got the idea of trying the snowflake design using the African color combinations of black, green, and red. I also added orange. I arranged the six large snowflakes almost in a wreath-like pattern. The results look rather eye-catching, don't you think?
The instructions for making a snowflake are a bit detailed. Below is a website link to use if you're adventurous enough to try one on your own. (http://www.craftcaravan.com/three-dimensional-snowflake-craft)
