Hmm I wonder if there was a run on online yarn stores in the last few weeks that is delaying people's shipments. :thinking:
In any case, I feel badly for everyone who has had to change their plans. Personally I am looking at this as a semi-structured way to see how much I really can finish in a defined amount of time. Although I will admit that two things have been cast on already so I didn't have several days of nothing on the needles.
And I believe that Stephanie decreed official cast-on time was 2pm EST regardless of when the opening ceremony was actually broadcast at your location (this is 8pm Turin time - when the opening ceremonies start).
Good luck and safe knitting! :XX: :XX: :XX:
