circular knitting a hat
Is there any way to get a little twist out of my knitting without taking my work out ? I just noticed it on my second row.Can I continue or do I take all my work out?

Sorry, but I think you need to start over.

If you're on the 2nd round, you can take out just the sts of that round to the end of the first one. Then move the twist along until it's at the join of the cast on and beg of the first round, then go on.

yep: the point of the join can be twisted to be correct. Any stitch of the 2dn round makes that impossible. Sorry.
Thankfully with most projects this mistake becomes visible right at that point. Only on very large diameter round knitting that can hide for longer - and then it is especially bad, really.
But here: move back (by un-knitting) to the joining point and work on from there after you untwisted.
