Two Loom Knitted Hats

This month's theme was to make something to give to someone. Here is what I made to give to someone else. I made them for Joyce who is giving them to her two little friends.  I tried to get them to her early so the girls would get them for Christmas but the weather made it unsafe to drive. So she got them on Christmas day instead, and will deliver them as soon as possible.

Milk Bread Rolls to Be Enjoyed by Others

For the December theme, I decided to make share some bread with a neighboring family.
I do love making bread so much that I am prone to random excursions into the recipe book, coming out with some quite tasty treats for the family.

It hardly ever leaves this house (not because it's afraid, but because it gets eaten!)

I like to use every baking adventure as a time to learn or practice what I do know, so with these soft rolls, I decided to try a new, shape.  The single knots are how we were taught to make this bread in school, and the swirly looking ones were an experiment to see how the folds would open up in the shape.

Anyway, I'm sure that this bread has been enjoyed and that feels great!

Oopsy, I thought it was my turn to pick a theme. But when I was re-reading posts, I see Zethan already wanted to do ornaments (or something you can share) in December. So I'll do my theme for January. Blush.

Theme for January

Since I haven't heard from Lanee' and Zethan went last month, and our new member is just learning the ropes, I'll go ahead and pick this month's theme.

New Year's Eve party hats, accessories and decorations.
And here is mine.
I love snoods. They keep my hair covered on a bad hair day, they are a lot of fun to make and wear, and you can make them to match your outfits.  I used to make them for an opera singer that had long hair. She wore them all the time and they became her signature.
I like to add a drawstring to mine to make them adjustable. I picked green with sparkles because that goes with Christmas, New Year's Even, Mardi Gras and St. Patrick's Day.

I can't wait to see what the rest of you come up with.
