Here's mine next to motleycruiser's:
I crocheted mine in about two hours of off & on crocheting. Hers is done in Bernat cotton and mine is Lily brand Sugar n' Cream. I am guessing that might be the reason that mine is a tad larger than hers. She also used a nice recycled blue yarn from a sweater for the edging. Such a nice shade! The bright blue of the Lily cotton is a bit low-brow to go with the natural yarn, I think. I believe it would be more suitable to go with a muted tone...or else do it completely in brights.
We should get a Crochet-a-long going for these! I plan on making some more!!!
