so far, so good

Matters are satisfactory up to this point, as in You've knitted the main portion of the sweater but not the sleeves? Well, so far, so good. This idiom was first recorded in James Kelly's Scottish Proverbs (1721), where it is defined: “So far, so good. So much is done to good purpose.”
