I'd say I'm 20-25% done now... I'm on the plain-knitting part, which is going swimmingly. I had a little confusion when I had to cast on for the neck and underarms, but only minorly so, and it looks good.

As I said to my mother this morning regarding my process: "It's going so quickly now - I'll be at the confusing part any time now!" (Keep in mind that I have very limited experience with cables, which is what the entire skirt is made of...)

Also, my Gigantic Ball Of Yarn That Will Never Ever End is finally showing signs of shrinking. It's now 1/3-1/4 of the size it was when I bought it, which still means it's the equivalent or 3-4 normal balls of yarn! This after making a sweater (links to Ravelry page) and now a good chunk of the way through Dahlia. I keep saying that the skirt length will be dictated by how long my yarn lasts!

I can't wait to get to a point where I can a) try it on, and b) figure out how the heck the skirt works. :P

Honestly, it's pretty gigantic. A good deal, too - I paid under $15 with tax ^_^
