Yarnover Truck Turns One!

It's Yarnover Truck's first birthday next week! 

Before she was blue!

Before she was blue!

Right before Christmas 2012 Barbra and Meridee stopped by the factory to place an order. We were so excited to hear more about their plans and honored to be the first order they placed for the truck!

We knew right away that we wanted to work together on an exclusive colorway. The ladies created a Pinterest inspiration board and not long after, Sabrina created Minty Unicorn! (There's a little more to that story, too.)

They brought the truck through in February to pick up the yarn, and we could see their dream coming together!

After all of our emails and phone calls and visits, and seeing all the work they were putting into making the truck as awesome as possible, of course we were ready to party with the ladies at the launch party in March!

In the fall, because of their experience with their own successful campaign, Barbra and Meridee gave us a lot of advice on our Indiegogo campaign. It was invaluable! They also donated a bunch of Minty Unicorn as well as Truck buttons and stickers that we used as perks. 

And just last month, it was awesome to see them drive the truck onto the floor at Stitches West this year! 

We're going to be celebrating on Sunday, March 23, at Bob Hope Park. We're bringing a trunk show, and there will be cake!

Yarn Tour and Trunk Shows in CA & OR

My dear and beloved fiber enthusiasts, these are great and exciting times for lovers of Anzula. Over the next few months you will find our yarns in the most fabulous of places.

First, from now until March 11, Nine Rubies has all of our yarns for an epic trunk show. The wonderful women at the shop cleared out much of the shop to make room for all of the yarn we delivered there after Stitches West. 

Bags and bags of yarn and fiber!

Then we jet over to Green Planet in San Jose. We'll be there from 2 to 5 pm. Last year we had the same schedule; it makes for a crazy day!

Sunday, March 16, we cross the bay into San Francisco. Princess Animal is one of our newest shops and we will be there from 1-4. It is a lovely little shop that shares space with a gift shop. I was there on Friday and might have burned a hole in my credit card. Doctor Who salt & pepper shakers?!


Monday we are driving all day to reach Corvallis, Oregon. We will end this leg of the yarn tour on Tuesday, March 18 at Stash from 11 - 2. Stash will also be featuring our yarns in their booth at Vogue Knitting Live in Seattle March 14 - 16.

New Colors and Patterns from TNNA

We had so much fun at TNNA in San Diego earlier this month.

We released six new colorways. Gravity is a crisp light gray, Nimbus is a dreamy light blue, Penny is a warm light brown, Prudence is a punchy bright purple, Temperance is an electric chartreuse, and Sexy is a gorgeous brown (named after the Sexy Knitter, read the story here).

We were also excited to share two new patterns at the TNNA Sample It! event. In the foreground of the photo above you can see Corrina Ferguson's shawl, Maragon.  It's knit in Cloud, in Prudence and Temperance. 

The other fabulous kit we had at Sample It! was for the Turntable shawl from Hilary Smith Callis. The shawl is knit in Dreamy, in Gravity and Sexy.

Sarah Wilson, the Sexy Knitter, created a gorgeous fashion show piece for us. If you haven't seen Gidget's Dress, click over and watch the fashion show video we posted on Facebook! The body is knit in Nebula, with the edging in Kale. Once the fashion show was over we were able to show the dress in our booth, and no one could resist checking it out. 

Now that TNNA is over, we are busy getting ready for Stitches West! We are so excited to be participating in the Passport Game (you could win $1,000, just for looking at yarn!!) and the Poker Run. Print your Passport before you get to the show (and mark your map!), and look for the Poker Run instructions in the show book upon your arrival. 

We can't wait to see your knits at Stitches West!
