I don't think I like to knit with wide ribbon

Started a top yesterday with wide ribbon and I will finish it but am not sure I am going to go there again. Maybe it is the way I am doing it. The book I purchased on knitting with ribbon says to keep the ribbon flat on the needles. With wide ribbon that seems to call for twisting all the time or I end up with ribbon that is a mess. Does anyone have any ideas. I knit the old fashioned way carrying the yarn in my left hand.

I wouldn't worry about the ribbon yarn being twisted on the needles. I'd put the ball of ribbon in a plastic bag with a rubber band at the neck and untwist this when necessary.
