My stick shift knob on my B5.5 twists about 1/16 of a turn. It has since day one. Does anybody elses knob twist? I think it's kind of annoying. How do you tighten it up?

Just tighten it...mine did the same until I twisted a couple of more revolutions.

It looks like the shift boot would twist with it if I did that. Is that not correct?

The knob unscrews from the stick, perhaps yours is loose. Some dumbass valet unscrewed mine once. Jerk.
Anyway, you can hold the boot in place while you tighten the knob, the knob will turn independently of the boot if you hold the boot to keep it from twisting.
