buy some new yarn you just *have* to try? go ahead & cast on & knit a few stitches...ooohh! it'd be perfect as a baby sweater! i'll just cast it on now & knit the ribbing for it to see how the colorway plays out...now you're up to the armpit, but you dont feel like pulling out the dpn's for the sleeve, so you toss it in a bag & set it aside -- it doesn't have a specific recipient, so there's no rush -- finish it when you want! Pick up that sock you've been playing with, then realize you aren't sure what sort of heel you want. put it back down & make a mental note to "think on it" and look up "afterthought heels" next time you're online....
pretty soon you have a good half-dozen projects OTN & you understand why everyone loves having extra cables for their interchangeable needle sets!
