You might want to consider a safety net in the future. I wish somebody had told me when I first started.
Bascially, you take something thin like dental floss and you string it along through your row every so many rows. If you have to rip out your stitches, you won't drop any and you'll know exactly which row you are on
this is also great for lace patterns where the stitch count isn't the same on every row and can be really horrible to try to frog.
