Quick question

I've seen some patterns that, in their glossary, state that sl1 means "slip 1 as if to knit." Others indicate in their glossary to "slip 1 as if to purl" when you see sl1.

My question is, is there a default for when a pattern doesn't indicate whether you are to slip 1 as if to knit or as if to purl? If it just says "sl1" and does not have a glossary, which way do you slip it?

MSKR Grounds Video

This video was taken on Thursday Morning very early before a lot of the guys arrived. It gives you an idea of the beautiful grounds this place has and it was very nice and cool, for that day only.
