big gaps when I cable
I have only just learned how to knit and purl less than a year and a half ago. I am ok, but not great - I don't knit too tight anymore, and my tension is mostly consistent. This website has taught me a lot. I am learning to cable, but am having a problem. When I cable with cheap, ordinary yarn, my cables come out fine. I have another yarn that is lighter, thinner, and has a very slight fluffy texture that I am trying to cable. Everything is fine except the stitches to the left of the cables (one cable is left-sloping and the other is right-). The stitches to the immediate left of the cables are very loose, so loose they look like big holes. I don't know what I'm doing wrong. Any ideas?
