Garlic Yeast bread; curls and frills

My husband insisted a record be taken of this bread. Indeed it had come out remarkably pretty, and tasty. The bread though is a basic pizza dough made with whole flour, white flour, salt, sugar, warm water and yeast. And a handful of cloves of minced garlic. I let it rise twice, for one and half hours. The fancy looks were achieved by piling little knots made from the dough and letting them rise in a loaf pan.

2 cups white flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon fresh yeast
1 cup water plus a little more
4 clloves garlic, minced
1 Tablespoon oil to grease

Let the yeast foam in half cup water with salt and sugar. Add it to the well in the mound of flour. Knead for 10 minutes. Add more water to bring together the flour into a dough. Add a little more water and work that in. Let it rise for 1 and half hour. Once doubled, work the dough again. Make dough balls and roll it into a rop. Make it into a knot and put it into the greased pan. Pile all knots and let it rise again. Bake at 180 degree centigrade for 30 minutes.
