I got the call from the online store that says they are the exclusive Opal yarn dealer in the USA. They are all out of the colorway I wanted. I sent them an email earlier asking for a receipt and wondering when it would be charged to my card. She replied to the email with a phone call (wth?) and left me a voice mail message. She didn't offer any other colors, which I thought was strange, but oh well.
So, now it's on to find some different yarny goodness for my mom's socks!
ETA: Oh, and it is so much more fun to watch the Superbowl while knitting!
