Tracking the sun as it heads south

sunset behind Crainy

One of my favorite sunset marks is Crainy Island in the Potomac River. south of Washington, DC.  On 11/14/17 the sun set behind Crainy Island, a significant mark on my horizon view. A tiny island now, it used to be about 10 acres. A farmer moved his cows out to it in pairs of canoes, two hooves in each canoe, so they could spend the summer grazing there. Must ask my friend who paints cows if she would consider recreating the concept! Hope you can find places/ways to mark the sun’s progress also.

The books and a booklet series based on each different yarn craft topic covered in "The Yarn Animal Book" (pompoms and other really easy yarn crafts, knitting, crocheting, rya, needlepoint and embroidery), are available on Amazon and Kindle.
