Well, this is it. I'm officially taking the rest of the year off. All orders are completed and have been shipped off. My shops are now closed (except my Ravelry and Craftsy shops, where my patterns will continue to be available throughout the break). I've even finished a few knitted presents of my own as well. Time to take a deep breath, relax with some nice mulled wine and get into the spirit of the season.
For once I thought ahead and planned for the holiday rush, preparing what I could in advance and scheduling the rest to be as efficient and stress-free as possible. (I even had almost all gifts ready by November!) You know, I'm actually looking forward to Christmas and New Year's now. Coincidence? I think not. ;)
The year 2012 has been a really good one and not the least thanks to my lovely customers. A big thank you goes out to each and every one of you!
