I picked up a great booklet at my local yarn store -- it's put out by Interweave Press and it's called "The Knitter's Guide to Yarn Requirements." It has charts to figure out approximate yarn requirements for TONS of different projects: mittens, gloves, socks, hats, scarves, and sweaters -- at multiple sizes and multiple gauges. It's heavy card stock and folds down to about 8.5" x 4", so not too bulky to keep in your knitting bag or purse. Very handy! :D
