Why I've Been Quiet

So I haven't been posting much, but there's a good reason!

My fiance and I got engaged two weeks ago! It's been very exciting. I'm only roughly planning the wedding now- it's going to be a year and a half engagement- but it's made life a bit crazy. I'm going to need to be working full time to save up for this wedding, and it's been a couple of weeks of constant busyness. Little chores and things just seemed to pop up from nowhere. Some of them were engagement related, some I've been planning for ages and some just happened to fall during this time.
The end of the crazy is in sight- I have a full day off Monday with nothing else planned. I am going to rest rest rest.

I have been crocheting still, of course! This hat is from the 2011 Interweave Crochet accessories issue. I had some spare laceweight leftover from a shawl I made last year, so I made this nice spring-like hat out of it.

Speaking of spring-like, I finally finished this scarf. I've been working on it a year and a half now, on and off. It's been a labour of love, that's for sure. It's 7" by 6', and there are five repeats of the motif that go on... forever, possibly.
I love the final look, and it was great to wear today for the incredibly beautiful warm day we had. Before work my fiance and I went to High Park and wandered around- watched the dogs play, walked through the woods and just enjoyed the gorgeous weather.
