You did a fantastic job!! I, too, love dishcloths ... they're kinda like eating potato chips. You can't make just one. They're so fun because they're so quick, and you can try out new techniques and have something you can actually use when you're all done!! Hooray for you!!
(BTW ... I'm a sucker for variegated yarn, too! Oh, and have you checked out this site
for more *free* dishcloth patterns?)
