No, don't cast off. You are knitting your stitches onto a piece of waste yarn -- basically, another piece of yarn to hold your stitches until you need to use them again at a later point in your pattern.

It's a lot like putting your yarn on a stitch holder only you use a piece of scrap yarn (preferably a contrasting color so you can see your stitches better.)

Well, I've wrestled with reality for 35 years, Doctor, and I'm happy to state I finally won out over it.
