Oh, how I love Plouf!, a fun yarn from Artfibers in SF. I found some of it left over from a scarf I made my mother-in-law. This is how skinny scarf came to be.

Learn from my pain: I finished this late last night. I was binding off the last stitch and realized I didn't have a pair of scissors handy. So I took scarf in hand, walked over to the kitchen, grabbed the shears and cut. All good until I pulled the strand the wrong way and started unravelling the scarf! ARGH!!! You do not want to make a mistake with Plouf. Ever. It is impossible to see the stitches. I managed to stop all the runs, I think. Never cut when sleepy.
