When I need to join in the round, I make sure that all my stitches are facing either in or out. If I have a few stitches (like for socks) they point in and if I have a bunch of stitches (like for a sweater or bag) I have the point out. It's easier to do a visual inspection to make sure there isn't a twist in the stitches. I usually go through them once by hand turning them all in (or out) and then just start knitting through the first stitch I cast on.
