I agree with PinkSamurai. It's not drawing specific, but I personally find I retain more than expected after a long break , and it's easy to get stuck in a rut spending all my time reviewing and making no progress, then burning out and repeating the process a few months down the line.

Imo it's better to set aside a portion of your time for review (even without the sabatical) and continue tackling new things.

These are what I use when doing these exercises. They usually run somewhere in the middle of the price/quality range, and are often sold in sets of different line weights - remember that for the Drawabox lessons, we only really use the 0.5s, so try and find sets that sell only one size.

Alternatively, if at all possible, going to an art supply store and buying the pens in person is often better because they'll generally sell them individually and allow you to test them out before you buy (to weed out any duds).
