Frozen base rock installed, now what?

We started a paver driveway this week and had material freeze. We excavated past the frozen layer of soil, and covered sub-base with geotextile. It snowed and froze over night, as well as the base rock. After breaking through the crust of the rock and we installed the unfrozen rock, compacting in 2-4" layers completely breaking up the clumps of frozen material as we went (not an easy task).

After doing alot of reading, I'm seeing this was probably a dumb mistake.

Now what? Do I leave it until spring to make sure things don't settle and re-compact with a big roller? Or because base was workable and I packed in 2-4" lifts is it ok to keep going?
