This Knitvent, we gather up all the peaceful moments and gentle surprises this time of year can bring. Amid the joyful bustle of holiday parties, shopping, wrapping, planning, and scheming, we’ll make room for rest, reflection, and gratitude. Each of our six mystery patterns will celebrate the peace to be found in little things. The hush of freshly fallen snow. Drowsy forest creatures bedding down for their winter sleep. A frosty evening dreaming in front of the fire with the ones we love best. Quiet moments spent knitting love into every stitch of a special gift.

Run away to a quiet cottage in Cornwall, a remote hideaway overlooking the sea. Outside, the waves crash against the rocks, but you are snug and warm, wrapped in blankets and toasting by a little wood-fired stove. There’s peace to be found in the wildness of the ocean and comfort to be gleaned from the humble pleasures of life on a windswept beach. No matter how fierce the weather may be, the sound of the sea can soothe a ruffled heart. When you’re feeling brave, you can climb the cliffs and take in the exhilaration of the view, or strike out in a sailboat and test your skills and courage against the wind. There is nothing else to do and nowhere else to be but right here, and every moment in this place is full of inspiration.

Ever since we human beings began trying to explain the world to ourselves, we have looked for—and found—meaning everywhere. We hear messages on the wind and see shapes in the clouds. We read stories written in the stars. We can walk into a room and somehow instantly understand what’s going on, without saying or hearing a single word. A hum of anticipation. An excitement that travels like a ripple through our awareness. It’s something in the air. It’s the atmosphere.

From the moment your feet hit the surf, the first swim of the day feels like freedom. Although swimming may be too strong a word. Movement is effortless, and this is more about relaxation, about surrendering yourself to the joys of the sea. Finally, you can let go and just float, buoyant and supported by the salt water. Bobbing up and down amon...

Sometimes all it takes to heal a place is to gently step away. Ecologists call this process “rewilding” and it is transforming landscapes around the world.

We’re making a little shift from flora to fauna to appreciate the little beings who dance from flower to flower. Honey bees are the best known and best loved of our pollinators, without whom there would be no beautiful gardens us to enjoy. They are fascinating creatures with complex societies and many talents. Not only do they fertilise our flo...

She didn’t travel anywhere without her wool socks. They were the first to go in her suitcase and on her feet as soon as the plane’s wheels left the runway. More precious than gold, handmade socks are a treasure that reminds us of all the miles travelled together.

The Tobermory shawl is named after an impossibly beautiful seaside town on the Isle of Mull in Scotland, where brightly painted buildings sparkle against the dark blue bay. Legend has it that a Spanish galleon laden with gold lies at the bottom of that bay, lost in the 16th Century and never recovered.
