Making a Vintage Baby Top

I've been working on this baby top for a long time, and it's FINALLY starting to look like the photo in the knitting book. I'm using a pattern from a vintage Bear Brand Baby knitting book.

Here's the pattern photo in the book:

And here's my knitting so far:

I'm using a pretty vintage cotton yarn, called "Cotton Carole" by Jessan. I just love the fabric it makes.

I got the yarn in a vintage knitting kit on eBay. It looks like this kit was originally sold at Kmart!!!
