Okay, so I have decided to knit an afghan for my friends for their wedding.

The bulk of the afghan will be intarsia (so very, very very boring) with a lace pattern for the edging.

How do I determine how much yardage I will need based on swatching and finished dimensions I want the afghan to be? Anyone good with the math?

Do a swatch of, say, 20-30 cm square, and unravel the wool, measure it, then you know how much length a 20cmx20cm square takes. Or weigh it, to find out how much that area weighs, to get the yardage.
Or just start it, and when you have finished a ball, you know how much a single ball will do, and how many you will need.
