Good Cheer #HappyHolidays #Yardsofhappiness #knitting #Gifts

I’ve had some unexpected good cheer coming my way this week by gifts I’ve received and gifts I’ve given. Since Christmas is just days away I thought why not share some of the joy? Yesterday was my Dad’s birthday and he was the King of giving gifts early.…
