That yarn isn't too bad, but cables generally look best in a smooth yarn. Boucle tends to hide pattern and details.

New knitters often choose the soft, fluffy or boucle yarns, but it's easiest to learn with a smooth, light colored yarn. If you like the yarn otherwise you could save it for a project where detail isn't important. Like a garter stitch baby blanket or something.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
