Thanks again everyone! OK, let me see if I can answer all your questions:
Starlight - Don't remember the # of stitches I CO - let me go count. OK, it looks like I went exactly by the pattern and CO 26 stitches. I used size 9 needles for this project. The pattern can be found here.
Jan, I need to look it up too b/c she was pretty picked over. I would love to get some more variations of this yarn. It's so soft and so affordable!! Hadn't thought about using this pattern as a dishcloth! Thanks! I'll do that - need to make some more anyway.
megan734 - LOL, no I don't want to sell it. I'm sure my DD is going to steal it when she comes home, so I'm glad I have another ball to make myself one. It was a VERY fast knit. Only took my parts of 3 days on and off.
