I was sitting quietly in the office, minding my own business, when a loud thump! from the porch startled me. I looked up–the porch is right outside my window–and saw the mailman heading back down the stairs. “A package big enough to thump?” I said to myself. “It must be something good!”
I headed outside and brought in this:
I hadn’t even opened it yet, and I knew it was something good. That little blue sticker told me so. But you really can’t get an idea of how big that box is. So I added something for scale:
I ripped open the box (ok, cut the tape very carefully), and found:

I would love to say it’s all for me…but not even close. These are all of the recently retired Three Irish Girls colorways on Adorn Sock; I organized a co-op in one of my Ravelry groups. I’ll be splitting these up into miniskeins for my fellow Beekeeper’s Quilt knitters (since they were responsible for getting me hooked on it, it was only fair that I hook them into some related stash enhancement. Right? Right. And it gave me a chance to get my hands on every one of the retiring colorways.
There were also a few extras in the box…not yarn, but goodies none the less.
