Two local craft fiends, one a knitter and one a crochet-er, have partnered up on what might be the nation's first mobile yarn boutique. Named the Yarnover Truck, its the brainchild of Maridee Nelson and Barbra Pushies. The duo, who met a few years ago at a knitting group, both work day jobs in the entertainment industry and will take their shop on the road nights and weekends.

Yarnover is stocked with yarn, of course, from small biz sources including Cali's Anzula Luxury Fibers and Brown Sheep Company out of Nebraska. They've also got accessories, patterns and more.

Nelson and Pushies plan to take park their Chevrolet P30 Step Van at greenmarkets, craft fairs, music festivals and street fairs as well as private parties (there's a contact form for more info). The pair is hosting a truck launch party this Saturday—find out how to celebrate with them and nab tickets right here.
