It may be okay in a cable pattern, but you need a little larger needle than you think, crossing the sts can be kind of tight with a yarn like that.

So I am now using the dreaded yarn that I didn't like to make a baby blanket but instead of doing cables with it I am doing garter stitch. But since I just learned how to knit on the diagonal (like a dish cloth) I have decided to knit the blanket this way! I have just started the decrease and it's sooo much easier than to try and knit cables with it!

Yes, if you have a textured yarn, a plain st shows off the yarn better. Textured sts are better with a smooth yarn.
