For my first sweater, I'm ambitiously (?) doing a man's sweater using Paton's Angora Bamboo (80 yds per skein) and this really nice pattern: http://knitty.com/ISSUEfall06/PATTavast.html
I noticed the pattern calls for a minimum of 1470 yds, so if my math is correct, I'll need 19 balls of yarn? I just bought 7, but 19 balls seems like an enormous amount...
Any feedback on yardage issues? Thanks in advance!
