Magic Loop Knitting

I am knitting my first pair of socks using the Magic Loop. When I knit my yarn after looping my cable/needle, the cable gets twisted and seems to interfere with my knitting. I straighten it out after each side but still gets twisted. Is that normal? If not, how would I correct it. Margie:knitting:

The loops twisting around can be normal. If your circ coils up when there’s no knitting on it, you can straighten it out some by holding the cord in very hot water for a couple minutes, then holding it out straight as it cools. This may take a couple times.
