This is my first cable project and I could use some guidance. I'm currently knitting the "Dashing" fingerless gloves from Knitty. However, when I begin to cable I notice a small hole in the p2 sections where it changes into a knit stitch for the cable row. Is this hole supposed to be there?

If you are refering to what

If you are refering to what I suspect you are referring to - it will become much less noticiable after washing as the tension of the stitches evens out.

or if you are referring to the hole at the edge of the cable where you have a crossover - yeah - it's always going to be there to some extent.
MMario - ambiguity is cultivated, it doesn't happen in a vacuum!
