In the case I'm talking about I couldn't really do that. I'd done it right for several inches before I put it down, then the gremlins showed up while I was... eating or whatever I was doing and I knitted several rounds backwards before I realized what had happened. Didn't know to frog down to the last botched row and then tink out the last one either, so not only did I wind up pulling out several rounds, then I was stuck with putting the stitches back on without losing any. Fortunately I was working in Encore, which is pretty sticky so I didn't drop anything. That I recall anyway. But it still wasn't fun.
