A color change always shows on the purl side. There's no way around it.

I don't like seeing the purl bumps, either, so if I change colors in ribbing, I knit the color-change row. On ribbing it doesn't show, but I imagine that it probably would on a cable pattern.

You can do it. There are many patterns where the color changes are part of the design. If you don't like them, try a few stitches in knit and see how it looks?
