Trivia -
~We're changing things up a bit for Trivia. Over a 6 week period, we'll ask a trivia question each week.
~****You can submit your answer via email to or via PM to JavaPurl (that's C.C.) on Ravelry.****
~If you don't get a confirmation of your response within 24 hours, resend it because you know how technology can be sometimes.
~The deadline to answer each week's question will be Wednesday at 12:00noon (central time).
~Everyone that submits the correct answer each week will receive one entry into the prize drawing (so you have the potential to have six entries in the drawing).
~On December 26th, we'll choose the winner (or depending on how many entries we have, winners) and announce them and their prize on the podcast.

~Last week's question & answer: Name the movie the following quote comes from & who said it when/regarding what: "It is a strange fate that we should suffer so much fear and doubt over so small a thing. Such a little thing."
The answer: The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, Boromir said it while holding the ring after Frodo lost it
~Congrats to dartfrog911, Enid, jordybear614, fourpeanuts, Knitnmom, & kelleyjogirl for answering the question correctly & receiving 1 entry into the prize drawing.

~This week's question: Name the tv show, episode name, & who said this quote: "I am and always will be the optimist. The hoper of far-flung hopes & the dreamer of improbable dreams."
~Deadline to answer is Wednesday 12/5 at 12:00noon (central time).
~****You can submit your answer via email to or via PM to JavaPurl (that's C.C.) on Ravelry.****
