Maybe use one of these stitch holders that looks like a giant safety pin instead of a cable needle - slip the 3 stitchs to that until you need to knit them, then slilp the stitches back onto the left needle when it's time to knit them.

Or watch the video here that shows how to cable without a cable needle. I have a difficult time w/ no calbe needle when knitting with smaller needles, but with your size 11 needles it should be fairly easy.

Good luck - don't give up!!
