Wool tangling
Hi I.m knitting a baby cardigan in two colours at the same time in every row, it's slow going as I keep getting the wool twisted, you have to twist the yarn to stop a hole forming, any suggestions to help would be appreciated

Twisting is inevitable to some extent when you use two colors. You can minimize it though. When you turn your work make sure the direction you turn it untwists. Sometimes keeping one skein on each side of you helps to keep them separated.
