Trivia -
Winner of our trivia question from last week is Amy (knitnmom on Ravelry). Congrats Amy! The question was: What is Matt Smith's (the current Doctor in Doctor Who) connection to BBC's Sherlock? The correct answer was: He auditioned for the role of John Watson but didn't get it because Steven Moffat thought his eccentric acting style was closer to the Holmes character which had already been given to Benedict Cumberbatch.
This week's question: In Once Upon a Time, there is a clue that changes weekly that is hidden somewhere in the episode. It gives a nod to the theme of the current episode. What is it and where is it located? ****Post your answer to this week's trivia question from the vidcast in the episode 9 thread in our Ravelry group.****
