Susie's Reading Gloves soon to be on the needles

Susie Rogers' Reading Mitts by Susie Rogers
I have had Susie Rogers' Reading Mitts in my ravelry queue since 2011. Based on the umpteen thousands of projects registered online, I'm not alone. They are a lovely design and seem elegant and not too difficult. I have avoided these a bit because knitting in the round on 4 pointed needles scared me. Don't ask me why. But I think I'm ready to try Magic Loop with these. I may even try them two at a time, but that may be tempting the fates to laugh at me.

After much deliberation during which I researched every 4 and 5 star DK yarn on rav, I finally chose Valley Yarns Northfield in the Grape colorway. I chose this yarn because I loved the color and it had fabulous reviews on ravelry. I've learned the hard way never to buy yarn without reading all the reviews and comments on rav and whatever other website has reviews (like WEBS). The reviews said it was a dream to work with, soft and not splitty. I hate splitty. The projects I saw all looked fabulous. The colors seem very rich and even. When it came I was happy it was SO soft and squishy.
Will keep you posted on that progress.
0ctober O's Reading Mitts. I can only hope mine will turn out half as good as these!

Are you very picky when you choose yarn for a project? How do you choose?
