I usually just go stitch by stitch when I'm down to the final stitches I need to reclaim.

Jan brought up a good point I neglected - move your lifeline every so often to a new correct row and make sure it's long enough for the width of the piece (when it's not all scrunched on the circulars) and a goodly portion to hang out on each side. I have used dental floss, but I read somewhere that it could slice through a thinner, more delicate yarn, so I usually don't use it on lighter weight yarns.

Here's a nice little tutorial on lifelines, pix, too.
