Twisted Sweater?

I'm so happy ( and a t-tiny bit proud too, lol)
I have posted pictures of a knitted shawl for my eldest Sister ( a late 84th birthday present), and
A scarf for my niece. I didn't post one of the moss green scarf for my niece' mother. My eldest sister, who was the recipient of the shawl called me immediately after opening her package, and said that it is the prettiest shawl she has ever seen, but she didn't have a dress to wear it with. My other sister who received the the moss green scarf loved hers equally well, and said she was going to buy herself a dark green coat to wear it with. My niece will not see her scarf till Easter morning

Why does this look like it is looking?
I am currently working on ( one of my current 4 knitting projects ) a triangular shawl that has a cable 4 L on one edge, and a cable 4R on the other edge. I have knitted a number of items with cables and all looked quite nice, but none of them looked like this. On the 4L, the twist of the cable barely shows. On the 4R side, the cable is nice n twisty. WHY does one cable look so sharp n twisty, while the other is a poor looking excuse for a 4 L CABLE?
