If I don’t knit or crochet at least once a day, I feel like a total slacker.
Hey everyone! I’m Deja Joy, the face and designer behind
Knit and Crochet Ever After.
Read on to learn a little about me.
How long you been crocheting?
From the time I learned from my great-grandmother until now — over 20 years.
Actual time crocheting (my 20s were a blur of school, work and debt, having a stash was not an option)– probably about 15.
How long you been knitting?
A much shorter time, only about five years or so. It took me a while to get the hang of it learning on my own.
How’d you start designing?
I got pregnant. I picked up the hook to make some stuff. I realized I liked designing rather than following a pattern, now I’ve been doing it over 12 years.

Where ya from?
I spent the better part of my life in Southern California, and while I miss Disneyland and the predictable weather, I find that moving around from place to place a more interesting adventure.
Currently I’m living with my family in the mountains of Arizona (yes they have mountains!).
Where You’ll find me:
I’m on a few different websites, so whether you purchase a pattern here or there, you can guarantee that I’m there for you every step of the way.
If you find my patterns on other websites or places than the ones listed below you might have bought from someone who is selling the patterns illegally. I, unfortunately, can’t provide support for these illegal activities so be sure you’re buying from the list below.
You can also find a couple of my titles on iBooks.
Thanks for stopping by and I would love to hear from you. Leave a comment or email me, I will be sure to get back to you super-fast!
