Yarn twisting using Continental method
I just taught myself the Continental method using this great website, but the left hand feed yarn twists as I knit and/or purl. I have to stop each row and untwist the whole piece to get the yarn straightened out . What am I doing wrong?

Do you mean the knitting on the right needle gets twisted? If so then that is normal till you have several rows done. Happens to everyone I think.

BTW I'm an english knitter and it happens to me, too.
