More hats and food!

Sorry it's been so long since I posted. I've been having technical issues with having access to a camera. Hopefully everything is fixed and will stay fixed :)

Here is the same hat that I made last time that was black and purple, only I realized that I did the band wrong on the first one. I thought I knew what I was doing, but didn't. It was supposed to be cabled. I took it out and ended up fixing it, but gave it away anyways. This one I used one hook size bigger since the first one seemed to be tight and I only went under one stitch instead of both stitches which creates the lines you see with the blue.
Another action shot. I was thinking of adding a purple pom-pom at the end, but I'm not sure. Very comfy
Here is me doing twisted cables. They were fairly easy to do, but it was difficult when I had to do the criss-cross to make it look twisted.
However, I was doing my lines and it caused it to become poofy since the cables make it tighter, and making the lines makes it looser. So this one is going to be taken apart.
Now for the recipes. I had gotten a recipe for PB&J muffins that sounded good off of the pillsbury flour packaging. The batter was peanut-buttery and it was very tasty. You are supposed to put some batter in the tins, put some jelly in, and then more batter on top so the jelly would be contained. The jelly was not contained well, and the muffins weren't that great tasting, so I would not recommend it.

However, there was a Thanksgiving event that I took some sweet bread that was gone within a half hour. I was told that out of everything on the table, it was the best. I'm not sure if I have put it on my blog, but here's the recipe.

2 c. sifted flour
1 c. sugar
4 t. baking powder
1 t. salt
1 egg
1 c. milk
1 T. vanilla

Combine and bake at 350 for about an hour.

It is actually a modified recipe that I got from my mother, but I still give her the credit for the recipe.

Anyways, wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!
