You are The Empress

Beauty, happiness, pleasure, success, luxury, dissipation.

The Empress is associated with Venus, the feminine planet, so it represents,
beauty, charm, pleasure, luxury, and delight. You may be good at home
decorating, art or anything to do with making things beautiful.

The Empress is a creator, be it creation of life, of romance, of art or business. While the Magician is the primal spark, the idea made real, and the High Priestess is the one who gives the idea a form, the Empress is the womb where it gestates and grows till it is ready to be born. This is why her symbol is Venus, goddess of beautiful things as well as love. Even so, the Empress is more Demeter, goddess of abundance, then sensual Venus. She is the giver of Earthly gifts, yet at the same time, she can, in anger withhold, as Demeter did when her daughter, Persephone, was kidnapped. In fury and grief, she kept the Earth barren till her child was returned to her.

Your result for The Perception Personality Image Test...

NBPC - The Daydreamer

Nature, Background, Big Picture, and Color

You perceive the world with particular attention to nature. You focus on the hidden treasures of life (the background) and how that fits into the larger picture. You are also particularly drawn towards the colors around you. Because of the value you place on nature, you tend to find comfort in more subdued settings and find energy in solitude. You like to ponder ideas and imagine the many possibilities of your life without worrying about the details or specifics. You are in tune with all that is around you and understand your life as part of a larger whole. You are a down-to-earth person who enjoys going with the flow.

Kureyon Tile Bag

THE PATTERN!! Kureyon Tile Bag by Nell Ziroli

5 skeins Noro Kureyon US size 9 needles 1 removable stitch marker

Leather handles

Gauge before fulling 4 stitches = 1"

Techniques: DD- double decrease: Slip 2 stitches as if to Knit together, knit 1, pass the 2 slipped stitches over the last knit stitch.

Pick up stitches RS: With the RS facing, insert the tip of the needle, front to back, into the garter bump or cast on edge stitch, and pull a new stitch through.

Pick up stitches WS: With the WS facing, insert the tip of the needle, back to front, into the garter bump or cast on edge stitch, and pull a new stitch through.

Cable Cast-on: Insert the tip of the needle between the first and second stitch, pull a new stitch through and add this new stitch to the LH needle.

Cable Cast-on purlwise: From the back to the front, insert the tip of the needle between the first and second stitch, pull a new stitch through and add this new stitch to the LH needle.

Splicing: As the yarn comes to an end, divide the old and new yarn into 2 plies, --< >–, overlap the ply ends with each other, and roll the splice between your hands to felt together. Once the join is knit in and then felted further, it will be as secure as un-spliced yarn.

Cast on 31 stitches, knit 1 row. Before knitting the next row, mark the front and center stitch (stitch 16) with the removable marker. RS rows: Knit to 1 stitch before the center mark, DD, knit to end. WS rows: Knit

Continue to 1 remaining stitch. With RS facing, pick up an additional 15 stitches, mark the last stitch, then using the Cable Cast-on method, add 15 more stitches. Beginning with a WS row (knit) repeat as above.

Make a total of 4 tiles, the first 3 are the base of your bag, the 4th is the first tile in the side of the bag.

To shape the bag, an additional 15 stitches are picked up along the left side of tile 4 from the Wrong Side- mark the last stitch, then the next 15 are picked up from tile 3, which will connect the base and side. Your first row will be a RS row, so mark the center stitch before you begin to knit. This method is used for all remaining tiles on this layer.

To keep the bag No Sew, when knitting the final tile in the layer, a stitch will be picked up from the first tile's edge and then the first knit stitch will be passed over it, which secures the edges together.

The layer is now level so to begin the next layer, pick up 15 additional stitches from the RS, Mark the last stitch, and then cast on 15. You will start with a WS row on this tile. Repeat until the 4th level is complete.

Pick up along the top edge evenly, and then turn the work to the WS. Knit and bind off. Weave in ends.

Put bag into a zippered case and felt to your liking.

Shape and dry, line for stability, then sew on the handles.
