Congrats on your first knitting project, April!! You picked a fun one!! And go ahead and use it ... you'll love using a knitted dish cloth; they're so much better than store bought! I'm completely spoiled by them now, and I don't like using my other ones at all.
Of course, you could always knit up two more in complementary colors, frame them in a deep frames, and hang them up as decorations in your kitchen!
