Yarn Buyer's Remorse

I find the best way to deal yarn buyer’s remorse to knit with it immediately. 9 times out of 10 if I buy yarn and cast on right away it's because I'm feeling guilty about adding to the stash. And psychologically if I knit it up and out right away then it was never stash and I didn't do anything wrong/questionable. How do you like that logic?!?!

This is not a confession, this was some advice I recently gave a friend on a yarn diet who fell off the wagon. I was pleased with myself and thought I'd share.

I agree, this makes perfect sense to me! As long as it does not go into the small cedar chest and become part of the family of "STASH" there is no need to feel guilty. "It" has become useful a great thing to be.
