How do I not get those really irritating holes when I make my cables?

That happens with cables. Knitting tighter doesn't seem to help - I think I read it makes it worse. After you've knit several inches they're not so noticeable and will even out a bit after you've blocked or washed it.
Here's several threads where this was asked about recently. The search feature is your friend.

To summarize, the holes in cabling are normal. They are caused by the crossing of the yarns. Try to do them a little loosely. Yarns without much give like cotton can make it appear worse, too.
Duh, never even thought of the search. Thanks for the info,though, now I don't feel so bad about the gaping holes.
