From my sheltered spot high on the cliffs I watch as a sea breeze sends foam tipped ripples dancing across the bay and the tide retreats from the golden sands revealing piles of smooth pebbles and shells. Farther out to sea the water darkens, the waves barely register at this distance but the little boat bobbing on the horizon, appearing and disappearing suggests they are more than they seem from here, that the calmness is merely an illusion. The wind picks up and the ripples catch the light and sparkle, mesmerising...
Mordryg (meaning “low tide” in the Cornish language) echoes the rippling of the retreating tide in meditative garter stitch worked in three different shades of the sea.

Substituting Yarn
Cove is a plump woollen spun 4ply which is sturdy yet soft, and blooms beautifully when blocked (hence slightly larger than usual needles).
