What is a good yarn for making a crochet afghan?

I am leaning towards Red Heart Super Saver because it is so cheap, but I know a lot of people hate it because it is scratchy. What would be a good yarn brand?

You are going to need at least a pound of yarn to make an afghan. Look for the pound-size skeins of yarn at Michael's, A.C. Moore, Hobby Lobby, Jo-Ann's Fabrics & Crafts. The pound size is usually $10 or less, and 4 times a year one or more of the brands are going to be on sale for around $6. At most of the craft stores, there are weekly coupons offering discounts on a single item. You could buy a pound of the yarn for less than $4 with a coupon and on sale, but even if you pay full price, it's a good deal.

Lion Brand has several colors in its Pound of Love, which is an okay yarn (not as good as Lion Brand Vanna's Choice IMO, but pretty good). See the colors here: http://www.lionbrand.com/yarns/pound.htm

Caron's brand is One Pound, and it comes in a wide variety of colors: http://www.caron.com/color_cards/cc_onepound.html

Premier Yarns has Big Ball, also in several colors. http://www.premieryarns.com/yarn.php?id=75

I don't usually recommend using cheap yarn and putting a lot of work into it--your loving labor deserves good yarn--and I wouldn't recommend these three yarns if I had not used them and liked them. I probably like the Premier Yarns Big Ball best, then Lion Brand Pound of Love, finally Caron's One Pound. However, you may have a different opinion.

Edited to add:
If you are willing to buy on line, sometimes you can get good deals on yarn at
