if I type command-P and type a file name, I am also given (useless) suggestions from my .sass-cache folder. How can I exclude that folder, or others like it?
You can use the “Exclude VCS Ignore Paths” setting:
If you check it, anything in your project’s
.gitignore file (or inherited from a global Git ignore, should not show up in the fuzzy-finder list.
The fuzzy finder uses both the core.ignoredNames and fuzzy-finder.ignoredNames config settings to filter out files and folders that will not be shown. If you have a project with tons of files you don’t want it to search through, you can add patterns or paths to either of these config settings

Yep I am. Must be it. The .gitignore is in my project directory but it must not pick it up.
