Stories from a life in progress.

Sitting, knitting

Earlier this afternoon I wrote out a list of important tasks and projects that I want to get done.

What I am actually doing right now, is sitting in front of my computer, knitting a simple tank top.

I get so stuck at these places, these spots where there is clear work to be done but I haven't found the front door, the entry point to start any of it.  It pushes me away from the pile of important things, not knowing where to start.  Even though it is a self-made list of things I want to have done, I'm avoiding the list and doing something I know how to do.  I know how to knit.  I'm good at knitting.

I'm not good at jumping in on new tasks or projects without guidance, when I don't know how to do them.  Not yet, anyway.  There's another thing I'd like to change.
