Off to St. Louis (or, I hate tourists)

Well, the subject line, not really related to each other. I left work today and met up with Amber to go knitting with the cherry blossoms. That was when I remembered how much as a local, I hate the Cherry Blossom Fesitval cuz of all the damn tourists! They don't know where they're going, they walk slow and block the way, and there are so many of them! When I lived in DC, my route home was 50 to GW parkway, to Memorial Bridge and from Independence Ave into Southwest. Well, it was always crowded to go home and I would look for ways to not go home. So yah, it took about 40 minutes in the car before I could get out of the city. Urg!

Tomorrow, I am going to work and then I'm leaving for St. Louis for the Frozen Four. I don't know who I'll cheer for so I might cheer for fights, OTs, and the roof falling in. I'll have with me the top down raglan and Charlotte's Web, and maybe a sock. We'll see. I'll remember to take some pictures. I'm going to throw out a question and hopefully, someone can send me an answer before I get to it. The Charlotte's Web shawl doesn't say to bind off. It says to crochet around the edge but I don't see the words "bind off" anywhere. It just goes from lace pattern to "Crochet Edge and Fringe" which goes into "With 3.5 mm crochet hook single crochet around the edge row." So does that mean I've already bound off the edge row? I should go pack now.

Perhaps you use a crochet bind off for the first side?

Have fun in St Louis. But don't cheer for the roof falling unless you're near an exit!

I'd say you need to bind off, because it doesn't say crochet into the live sts.
Have fun cheering for whoever! I'd love to travel around the coutry and cheer for my team, especially that the baseball season has started.
