Following on from "Why didn't Sauron find Bilbo when he put on the ring like Frodo?Why didn't Sauron find Bilbo when he put on the ring like Frodo?" and it's (possible) dublicate "Why was Bilbo not discovered by Sauron during his extended stay with the Wood Elves?Why was Bilbo not discovered by Sauron during his extended stay with the Wood Elves?", there is a possible plot inconsistency uncovered.

In Gandalf's note to Frodo (delivered by Butterbur at the Prancing Pony) we read a warning to not wear the Ring:

PS. Do NOT use It again, not far any reason whatever!

However, later on in Lorien (after the Galadriel-freak-out scene) we see Frodo saying:

I am permitted to wear the One Ring.

What happened between the two events to change this?

Why was Frodo not allowed to wear the Ring before Rivendell but was allowed after?
