uneven yarn overs
i'm working a simple cable pattern (snow angels from Vogue's stitchionary 2). there are several rows of the pattern that contain variations of this sequence:

K5, yo, P1, yo, K5

the first YO leaves a bigger hole than the second YO --

Despite pulling the yarn tight for the first, and loosening it for the second, i can't seem to get the center column (P1) of the cable to look centered...any ideas, oh wise and talented ones?

It should be fixed when you finish the project, and block it.

Yes, they'll even out after washing or blocking. One thing you could do is wrap the 1st YO the opposite way, but you'll have to remember not to twist it on the row back and not to do the 2nd one the same way.
