Dh just checked for me and NBC is showing it at 8:00 pm and it notes that it's delayed...so it's not the actual start time--so I guess that means it'll finish up a little later here too...

The yarn for my daughters birthday afghan is being SHIPPED tomorrow (even though I ordered it last WEEK!), so I emailed Stephanie and switched mine to 2 pair sof FT clogs. *sigh*

I am still really stoked about it, and have to go grab yarn for my clogs tomorrow! (Already have yarn for dh's clogs)

My last minute adjustment is because I have a show that I have needs for... So... I'll be doing several projects! Unfortunately I had to start on them already, so I guess I am disqualified...

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:

I keep having to remind myself that I can't start until the torch is LIT not just when the opening ceremonies begin. I can't wait, though! I am also very giddy about beginning.

I believe that the official start time in Torino is in about 2 hours (I believe it starts at 6:00 pm their time) and everything is tape delayed around the world for evening viewing. (Gosh this might save NBC from making a huge faux pas like in Athens when they showed the "naked people" (rolling eyes) ) Which makes me wonder if the torch is already lit for real in Italy couldn't I start knitting during the opening ceremonies even before the torch is lit tape delayed? :D

glad to see someone else is giddy too...as someone posted earlier, I think that it states somewhere that the official start time is 2 pm EST, regardless of when it's being broacast.

You all are correct about the start time. Here's the 411 taken from January 17, 2006:

Quote:
Here's the executive decision. The Opening Ceremonies start at 8pm Torino time. Torino is six hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time, which would mean starting at 2pm in the afternoon.
How about we agree on 2pm February 10th, no matter where you are? (Does that help those of you without a tv?
I'm so excited. Only five hours to go for me.
