Magic Mosaic Afghan

For my next project, I want to tackle Barbara Walker's magic mosaic afghan. I love mosaic tiles in general and would love to see it in a blanket. My issue is on how much yarn to buy (so that I'm using the same lot numbers.) There's no indication in the book and when I research online, I haven't found an answer. Has anyone completed this project? Does anyone have an idea on how I might try to figure out how much yarn is needed?

Thanks for your help.

Watermelon shawl

Finally finished this piece for an August birthday gift for my 15-year-old niece. She loves pink and has a summer birthday. When I ran across this pattern, it made me think of a slice of watermelon. I hope she likes it.

Birthday sweater

Just finished a sweater for my brother's birthday coming up in June. Not only will he not wear it anytime soon, it's a long shot he'll wear it at all since we live in Arizona. Anyway, thought I'd share.
