Blogspotting: Nat Raedwulf of Wolf & Faun Knits

Nat Raedwulf of Wolf & Faun Knits focuses on minimal, high quality, curated knits and notions. She designs, blogs, and sells her selections on her website. This installment of Blogspotting in knitscene Winter 2017 gives you the full story on Nat’s approach to the handmade life.

How long have you been blogging?

About two years, but I have only gotten serious about it in the last year.

What inspired you to start a blog?

I was told that I should be sharing what I was doing on Instagram. I was really hesitant at first, as I tend to resist social media, but after noticing all of the other amazing people collaborating and sharing on that platform, I decided to try it out. I’m so glad I did!

What types of projects do you like to knit and blog about?

I like to share projects that have stories behind them. I’ve been told I have a very symbolic mind, and I like to share and explore things that relate to my interests about nature, myths, legends, my heritage, and my own personal journey through life.

Which post has been your favorite to write so far?

I wrote a blog post about my philosophy of F#!k Yeah! It’s about my creative advice to others and the guiding force behind a lot of my designs and decision making. It’s my favorite phrase/creative mantra because I put myself out there in a really intimate way for the entire world to see—for better or for worse—and people love it! I also really enjoy my Full Moon Musings, where I draw from inspirations in the moment to share what is important at that time in my design and creative processes.

Name one blog you love to read and share why you love it.

I love following the Fringe Association blog because there are a lot of important conversations going on about slow fashion, which preserves and promotes fiber skills and awareness of the places our fibers come from.
