I like to cast on one extra stitch when working in the round, either on dpns or circs. When I get to the end of my row, I take the last stitch and slip it on to the first/other needle. I then knit {or purl depending on the pattern} it together with the first stitch. The very beginning may look a little wonky, but the beginning yarn tail fixes that up very nicely when weaving in ends later.
