Hi! I’m Jayna Grassel, founder and owner of JJCrochet. I’m 27 years old and have been crocheting since I was 8 so that puts me just under 20 years of experience (had to do the math). My favorite Bible passages are Psalm 139 and Romans 8. I am saved by grace.
I love dreaming up new patterns – both crochet and knit. It’s amazing how each crocheted or knitted hat I make is an one-of-a-kind, uniquely designed work of art. At last count, I was 1 stitch away from becoming the world’s fastest crocheter (Lisa Gentry currently holds the record at 28 treble crochet stitches in one minute). One day, I’d like to break that record. I’ve even purchased a hand-gripper so I can practice.
I graduated from a small liberal arts college in Pennsylvania with a bachelor’s degree in Entrepreneurship… and an unofficial minor in crochet. During the day, I work in DICK’S Sporting Good’s e-Commerce department, doing search engine optimization and digital marketing. (Translation: Web stuff on Google). By night, I crochet.
My ideal life would consist of mornings working, afternoons napping, and nights crocheting or designing. I want to live a life of purpose (who doesn’t?) and am trying to coordinate that with my love of crochet.
I’m blessed to have one father, mother, brother, sister and too many friends to count.
