That's great!  It's going on my list - I'm a beginner, too, but I love the way that came out.

Do you have a sense of how many balls it took per row?  I'm thinking of a Hudson Bay-type blanket, where there's one panel of cream, one of blue, another of cream, one of green, and so on.  Would figuring two balls per panel be enough?  The pattern calls for 9, and yarn is on sale this week at Michael's...

for what the pattern called for, it took just over one skien per column. Overall it used 8 skeins, which is one less than the pattern called for. If I were to make a large afghan, which I one day might, I would knit each column for two skeins. and add  more columns. It is oh so cozy.
