Thanks for those two tips: "REVIVA-NAIL TO THE RESCUE". I love it. But, if let it all hang out, so to speak, will I be in breach of knitter etiquette? Since the scarf is to be a gift, would it be totally gauche to include a discrete mini-ball of fringe yarn in the gift box? Better men's dress shirts always come with extra buttins sewed ionto the front tail. I mean, after all!
