The Year of the Tiger
People that are born in the Year of the Tiger are generally well liked because of their charismatic personalities. Often, failing at a given duty or being unproductive in his personal or professional life can cause a Tiger to experience a deep sense of depression. A Tiger is always at their happiest when they endeavor to climb the ladder of success. Attaining the top spot is his foremost purpose; being in a position of power is her ultimate goal. They are quick learners, need to be challenged and often prefer to work alone. Some Tigers tend to change careers more frequently because they get bored quite easily. They are natural born leaders and perform at their best if working towards positions of power and influence. So once there is no further room for progression, they will often move on to something else.
Anyone that is born in the Year of the Tiger is usually straightforward and outgoing by nature. They will never give up no matter how aggravated they may become. But, they are also full of suspicion and at times will take hasty action. Never lose sight of the fact that Tigers are smart and instinctive.

Ever since I was young I've been associated with tigers. But now that I'm reading the description above, I see characteristics that don't apply: I'm not one to change careers frequently, I don't get bored easily, and I'm not searching for power and influence. At least I don't think I am. On the other hand, I am tenacious (which I also attribute to the Taurus in me) and can let suspicion get the best of me.
To celebrate this special year, I spun Royale Hare Superwash Merino Combed Top that I purchased at Stitches West 2 years ago.
