Trivia -
Winner of our trivia question from last week is Amy (knitnmom on Ravelry). Congrats Amy! The question was: Benedict Cumberbatch from BBC's Sherlock and Jonny Lee Miller from Elementary have another connection besides the fact that they both play Sherlock. What is it? The correct answer was: They were both in 2011 National Theatre Production of Frankenstein. They traded back & forth between the roles of the creator & the monster nightly.
