Border color different, how to manage 2 colors
Hi... I would like to make a blanket with a 3 inch border in seed in a contrasting color for the body of the blanket.

I am new to knitting and do not know the best way to manage the yarn or the side border once I get the bottom 3 inches done.
Do you use separate balls of yarn for each side and pick them up when you get to the border? So would that mean taking a skein and creating 2 separate balls? How would you estimate how much yarn for each side?

I am thinking of doing a baby blanket .. maybe the BigBadBabyBlanket where the border is a contrasting color to the main / center of the blanket.
Probably something about 30 inches in size of so.

Thanks for your help...
