Ready to start!

I am ready to start working on a shawl from the book, maybe I will start the lace rectrangle. I have two skeins of sea silk (will have to pick up more) and I think this will work great with this pattern.

However, I don't think I understand how to work the borders. I have Sharon Miller's Heirloom Knitting and I still can't figured it out. Is there someplace on the web, or a book that shows clear instructions on how to knit a border?

Carol, I posted about my first knitted-on border here.

The book's instructions mystified me too, but once I started the border they made sense. I'm glad I was using Sea Silk instead of a fuzzier yarn; the stitch definition helped me see where to place the needle.
