Looking for a DK cotton blend.
I am wanting to knit this pattern http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/georgie-3 for myself. I have never made a sweater and I haven't used much DK or cotton blends. I live in Texas and want to wear this in the spring and summer (while indoors with the AC). I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions?

I was looking on my LYS websites and found Sublime Soya and Sublime Organic Cotton. What do you think of these? I guess I am looking for the right $$$, too. I will need to make the XL so it will require about 2300 yds. Oh my... I have never bought that much of any one yarn. The whole thing makes me a little nervous. (The pattern itself looks easy enough.)

Any help would be great.
