Hi Ladies,

I am in need of one of those heavy pullovers to throw on on the way out the door to take my dd to school in the mornings.

I want to make this (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter03/PATTbanff.html) from Knitty.com.

Little Knits is having a sale on some Debbie Bliss Super Chunky Cashmerino -- a bag (10 skeins 83 yards each) for $57.99.

Knit Picks Swish Bulky is $7.49 to 7.99 a skein for 137 yards which would bring me to $52 to $55 for the seven skeins I would need for the sweater (more than enough yardage.)

Which would you choose? Any advantages of either?

So far the only selling point for the DB for me is there is a color I like better than the Swish selection.

Any input is appreciated!

Thanks,
Susan
