The Beginning of a Pretty Pink Dress

I have been working on my Dress with Eyelets from the Baby Knits for Beginners book by Debbie Bliss. I just wanted to share my minimal progress. This is the first time I have knitted on such small needles. These are a size US 3 circular needle.

The pattern called for you to knit across and then purl back. But after knitting the Sahara sweater in the round from the top down, I knew I could adapt this pattern to be knitted in the round from the bottom up to the bodice. Once I get to the bodice, I figure I can divide the front and back stitches to knit on US size 3 straight needle to complete the top of the dress. So far so good.
