The loose yarn coming from the skein/ball will tangle and twist somewhat too, but you can minimize that by putting them in separate bags or bowls. If you're using just one skein, you can let the work dangle and untwist every once in a while if it drives you crazy. If you always turn your work the same direction at the end of every row, it's going to make the twist worse, so if you alternate the directions that can help.
Thank you ~ I am using Red Heart "Fiesta" yarn and they are not going to be felted ~ it's the Bernat Super Value Men's & Ladie's Slippers pattern in the "Harvest" color ~ but hopefully they will look nice when they're finished. They are going to be a gift for my SIL's father who asked if I would knit him a pair of slippers to replace a pair that he's had for a LONG time and have big holes in them! I just hope he'll like them!
