could you explain the direction "slip stitch this side border in place" ? I really have no idea what that means.
Thank you!

The best explanation of a slip stitch is a video I found on YouTube:

http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=slipstitch%20border%20into%20place&source=web&cd=6&ved=0CE4QtwIwBQ&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3Dgj6lfc9-Hds&ei=ov7QTq7THYTMsQLx8ID3Dg&usg=AFQjCNEgjW5PcacL_HsU-soDLyvnf_XE2A&sig2=sbsANwdW9Q9ziJKeicg0jQ

It is called Knitting a Slipped Stitch Edge.

If you have any questions after this, please contact me, but I think this should help.
