Winter Dress - 5 Skeins Done

I finished up Skein 2 this afternoon.  On my Autumn Dress I switched to skein 1 when I started working the front and back separately, but on this one I continued with skein 2 after the split, working front and back at the same time by working from both ends of the skein.  I've not done this very often, just because you have to be careful to avoid twisting, but with gradiant yarns in any kind of garment other than a shawl I think it is the easiest way to make sure that you are using it evenly without having to weigh it.
