when i am knitting difficult cabled designs (like a saxon braid) i prefer to use a cable needle (well, actually I use a dpn because i can only find the tiny curved cable needles and i dont like those). When i dont use a cable needle, i find that the stitches are harder to keep uniform because they have to stretch much more, but for simple six or four stitch cables that i dont have to constantly read the pattern to make, then i can go with or without the cable needle.
