Log cabin blanket border

How on earth do I knit a border for my 9 square blanket? I'm on square 7 and am already future-tripping about the border. I don't have a 834" circular so how do I do it? Help!

You can read about it at http://nautiknitter.wordpress.com

It's easy to do it one edge at a time. See the recipe for the border on page 75 of the book. You can also do it on a circular, in the round, but I've found it irritating to have to keep switching the whole blanket around, keeping the yarn from getting tangled/stuck etc. So I do mine one edge at a time. You can also just do a log-cabin border, one edge at a time. xox Kay
 
You mean I have to pull the book out? Gasp!

Der, why didn't I think of that?! One of those Homer Simpson 'DOH!' moments. Thanks for reminding me!
 
I am doing an applied i-cord on my log cabin blanket. (photos on my blog at zenknit.wordpress.com) I am using super long circulars, picking up one whole edge at a time, but with the applied i-cord you can just pick up stitches as you go. Check out the i-cord edge tutorial on knitty.com if you need a direct link, just let me know.
 
I think this blog is being spammed.

Thanks for the info on borders, I had a doh moment myself.
 
I did the border on mine log-cabin style, one edge at a time. It was just like the rest of the blanket, except all four edges were the same color.
 
Susan's idea about the applied Icord is great. I just did a cardigan with this border and it looks fabulous.

Also: although it's not knitting, I find a crocheted border can look very good. I use a hook 1/2 mm smaller than the knitting needle size and use half-double crochet (one round or two depending on your preference).
 
Hello people want to express my satisfaction with this blog very creative and I really like the views of the focus very good indeed Thank you for the helpful information. I hope you keep up the good work on making your blog a success!
 
With so many games streaming data from the HAZEL on the fly. The methodology for the tests was remarkably straight for ward first from HAZEL DVD, then from hard disk. As the opportunity to install to HAZEL DVD COLLECTION is obviously a compelling argument for upgrading the hard disk.HERE'S LUCY
