If you like abstract art...

...then you'll like this mini version of the Lotus Blossom Tank from IK. After making an LBT for myself, I had a little yarn left. So, I made an 18-month-old size for my daughter to match mine. I got almost to the very end, was on the second strap, and ran out of yarn. Doh! Now, I knew that I probably wouldn't have enough to do the edging when I started the tank. So...what to do? I started knitting the remainder of the strap with taupe Patons Grace and said "the heck with it!" It's not THAT bad. Two nights ago I washed the tank, and today I did the edging. Since my daughter has gone to bed already, I'll have to wait until tomorrow to take pictures of her wearing it. Can't wait to see her in the finished product because I already tried it on her before doing the edging, and it fits!
