Prabook Update

So, since posting the warning about the site Prabook, my blog has been getting regularly hit by bots from Russia, China, and other countries hot for identity theft.  Coincidence?  I don't think there's anything they can really steal or do, and we're pretty careful about identity theft and that sort of thing, but if there was ANY doubt that Prabook wasn't a totally malicious site, I certainly don't have any now. 

So, if you find yourself being given an unauthorized profile, the email to contact them is contact@prabook.org.  Because they won't let you block your profile even if you request it be taken down, I would also report them to your state's consumer protection division in the Attorney General's office, and keep a copy of your request to have your profile taken down. 

Me Made Mondays?

While catching up on blogs last night, I ran across a post on the Sew News site called "Me Made Monday."  I've heard of "Me Made May," and have even thought about trying it, but the timing is just too difficult.  The idea is that every day in May, or on every Monday, one would wear something he or she made.  As a knitter, having the challenge span the entire year would make it much, much easier.  Conversely, I have sewn more summer clothes than winter, so a challenge spanning all seasons would make a lot of sense. 

Have I found my crazy challenge for 2016??????????????
