The pattern is Sunny Baby Blanket, which I found on Ravelry. And the yarn is knitpick's comfy worsted in Vinca.
I'm reading Christopher West's Theology of the Body for Beginners, for a book group I'm in with the Catholic Moms. It's okay. I've gained a few insights from it, but a lot of it is stuff I've heard before. I don't really like his writing style. I feel like he uses a lot of words without really saying much sometimes. And it can get a little slow. But the discussions it spawns at the meetings promise to be enlightening.
