I am totally prone to forgetting stuff like this, so before I do...
Everyone should go pledge to be handmade (or at least local or eco-friendly) stuff for the holidays as much as they possibly can.
(clicking brings you to the crafty/diy section of Mixed Plate, which is featuring Midnightsky Fibers as part of their holiday guide!)
I completely agree! I spent hours searching Google and Etsy to find yarnmakers who produce their own yarn -- preferably local in as many areas as possible (wool from local sheep, dyeing locally, spinning locally).
I need to write up my results, but it was great fun to do the research. Knowing that my yarn comes from a real person who raised the sheep, or handdyed the skein, makes such a difference.
It's a whole new level of enjoyment.
